Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is looking to do a spot of shopping in the January transfer window in an attempt to get his team away from the Premier League`s relegation zone.

The boss has stressed that it is important that new faces come into the team to add that bit more bite and firepower in the busy Christmas and New Year.

‘I’m hoping to add to the squad, whether it’s through loans or permanent transfers, but we’re certainly looking to try and add to the squad,’ McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.

‘They [the board] know that we do need a little bit of help.

‘It’s going to be hectic late December, January. We’ve got a load of games and to ask the same players to play week in and week out will be tough.

‘I suppose it depends on results, because they don’t seem to feel tired when they’re getting victories. However, I would think we’ll use a fair bit of the squad in that period.’


And McLeish does realise that there might not be bags of cash to splash out.

‘We are looking at the loan situation, and if push comes to shove then we will see.’
