McLeish Seals Zigic Deal
Birmingham City have won the race to sign 6` 8" striker Nikola Zigic after the player passed a medical at St Andrews.
The Serbian has agreed a four year deal with Blues and will cost the club something in the region of £6 million.
Everton, Fulham, Stoke and Sunderland were all in the race for the striker but Birmingham came out top as manager Alex McLeish sets about strengthening his side ready for next season`s assault on the Premiership.
The former Red Star Belgrade striker has been tipped by Serbian coach Raddy Antic to be a star in the forthcoming World Cup in South Africa and McLeish wanted to tie up a deal before any possibility of his price going through the roof during the competition.
