Hughton Gets The Call
Chris Hughton has been appointed as Birmingham's new manager it was confirmed by the club.
The appointment comes just ten days after Alex McLeish resigned to take charge of Aston Villa after bringing in players for next season.
Hughton beat off the competition from Roberto Di Matteo as the race came to an end.
A statement on the club's official website said that Hughton will take charge of the Blues immediately and that the club hoped that he could repeat what he did with Newcastle and get Blues back in the Premier League at the first attempt.
