Birmingham complete Michel signing from Gijon



Birmingham complete Michel signing from Gijon London: In-form Birmingham City signed Spanish midfielder Michel from Sporting Gijon for three million pounds on Monday.

“Michel is in a great age group, has got good legs and a lovely touch on the ball as you would imagine from a Spanish player performing at La Liga level,” City manager Alex McLeish told the Premier League club’s website.

Michel, 24, has signed a two and a half year deal at St Andrews.

Birmingham, who drew 1-1 with Manchester United on Saturday to set a club record of 12 unbeaten games in the top flight, are eighth in the league and trying to qualify for Europe for the first time in almost 50 years.
