McFadden completes Birmingham move

LONDON, England — Birmingham have completed the signing of Everton striker James McFadden in a deal thought to be worth $11 million.

The Scotland international is reunited with Birmingham manager Alex McLeish after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

The deal has gone through in time for McFadden to be available for Saturday’s visit of Chelsea.

McLeish is confident McFadden can make a big impact during the next five years with Birmingham. The former Scotland manager said: I am delighted to have signed James.

He is not just a guy who can score great goals. He can also create things and make things happen and he has got a big heart.

He is the type of player you know you are going to get everything from for the entire 90 minutes of a game. He has matured. He has had his initiation at Everton in the Premier League and for me he is a definite Premier League player.

McLeish has already signed Hibernian full-back David Murphy for $3 million and is pressing ahead with his attempts to sign Aston Villa central defender Gary Cahill and Manchester City’s Greek international striker Georgios Samaras. E-mail to a friend
