Birmingham City`s new striker Nikola Zigic could not hide his delight after signing for Blues.

The 29 year old completed a four year deal with the St Andrews outfit which is believed to have cost the club somewhere in the region of £6 million.

After helping Racing Santander escape relegation while on loan last season, Zigic admitted that he jumped at the chance of getting into the English Premier league and he is glad it is City that he has joined.

‘I am absolutely delighted to be at Birmingham. Playing in the Premier League is something I have always wanted to do,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘It will be a super experience and I’m thoroughly looking forward to it.

‘I’ve been watching the Premier League for many years, it’s something I’ve always followed and kept up to date with.

‘What really swayed me to join Birmingham was the potential of playing for such a big club in the Premier League and the potential of playing in Europe and it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

‘I am delighted to get the deal done so quickly.’
