Birmingham complete Jiranek signing
Tuesday 31 August 2010
Birmingham have completed the signing of Spartak Moscow captain Martin Jiranek on a one-year deal.
The Blues have paid an undisclosed fee for the 31-year-old Czech Republic defender.
Birmingham boss Alex McLeish told www.bcfc.com: "We are short at the back with regards to defensive cover.
"Jiranek has tremendous experience on club, European and international fronts.
"He is a good presence and his arrival will keep Roger Johnson and Scott Dann on their toes."
Jiranek, who has 31 international caps, cost Spartak £4.7million in 2004.
