As expected, Birmingham have completed the signing of West Ham midfielder Lee Bowyer on loan until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old has struggled to command a place in West Ham`s side so far this season, but that doesn`t stop boss Alex McLeish being over the moon with his capture.

McLeish said: ‘Lee’s a dynamic player and I want to bring a dynamic look back to the team.

‘Roy Aitken, one of my assistants, has worked with him at Leeds and knows him as an attacking midfielder but he also knows that Lee can give a lot to the team as well.’

Bowyer rejoined West Ham in 2006 but so far this season he has only managed seven games and found the net just once.
