The 26-year-old has left Doncaster Rovers to join the Blues on a two-year contract, becoming the eighth player to move to the Birmingham-based outfit this summer.

The Wales international winger has now explained why he decided to move to City, underlining the importance for him of playing for a big club.

"There has been interest there for a while and there were a few other clubs," The Birmingham Mail quotes him as saying.

"It was out of them or Birmingham but as soon as I knew of their interest I wanted to sign here because it is such a big club.

"Doncaster wanted to renew the contract, I spoke to the chairman there and the manager [Paul Dickov] actually rang me after my medical here and he wished me all the best.

"It ends on good terms. They want me to do well, it's just that I don’t want to go down to play League One again.

"Birmingham are a massive club, they get a lot of fans here week in week out and it's got great ambition here as well.

"Being in the Championship and being closer to home made sense to come here."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
