McLeish looking to spend more

Despite spending close to 20 million on new players during the summer, Blues boss Alex McLeish is hoping to get another 6 million off the board to strengthen his defence and midfield.

Since gaining promotion, Birmingham could field near on a complete new look side with Christian Benitez, Scott Dann and Barry Ferguson being amongst the new signings.

But McLeish feels that there is room for improvement if they want to stay in the Premier League next season.

'When you see Newcastle and Boro going down and what they'd spent over the past few years, I can understand out board being very careful we don't ruin the club,' he said in the Daily Star Sunday.

'I'm just looking and hoping for another 5m or 6m to spend before the deadline.

'I still feel we need a couple of players of real quality - a midfielder to complement the guys already in there and a leader at the back.'
