Gregory Vignal, 28, formerly of Liverpool and Pompey has joined blues just in time for the friendly this Saturday against Sporting Gijon.

Its well worth noting that with the pursuit of Traore looking silent on the French front and the fitness worries to Murphy and Frank Quedrue, its important for Blues to not count their chickens before they hatch and pull in some extra support in the fall back position.

The Friendly this Saturday against Sporting Gijon is also a good chance for McLeish to take a look at their 23 year old centre midfield maestro Michel, the young ace is marked up at 4.5 million Euro and the management team have been looking at him since last November.

McLeish watched the young man last week and its rumoured the blues board have shelled out £50,000 pounds for this friendly and further costs for flight expenses for the Spanish BBVA new boys.
