David Cotterill: Wales winger delighted with Birmingham City move

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."
