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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
