Birmingham have completed the signing of striker Marcus Bent from Charlton Athetic after the player snubbed Cardiff City.

The 30-year-old has signed a three year contract with Blues in a deal that could be worth just over £1million with add-ons.

The deal came about after the player turned his back on Cardiff at the last minute and wanted to speak with Birmingham.

Blues now have five first team strikers on the books.
