The official Blues site has just announced that Blues have agreed a deal with Bolton Wanderers for Tunisian international defender Radhi Jaidi. The deal could eventually cost the club £2m and Jaidi is set to sign a three year deal. The deal is subject to the Bolton man getting a work permit.

I’m happy with the capture. I’m not comfortable with Tiny at the back and the youngsters, whilst promising, aren’t going to be up to the job of a 46 game slog. Tebs is a competent Championship centre back and I honestly don’t believe we’ll see out the season with Matty Upson a Blues player.
It’s given some much needed strength at the back and I’m now feeling a lot more confident for the season ahead. 1, possibly 2, attack-minded players to come in now and I think most of us will be fairly happy.
Fulham have released a statement claiming that reports of Blues being close to the capture of former USA international striker Brian McBride are wide of the mark.
Following recent press speculation regarding other clubs’ interest in Brian McBride, the club would like to make it clear that no offer for Brian has been accepted and that he is very much part of Chris Coleman’s plans for next season.
I’d said it once and I’ll say it again, I’d love to see McBride in a Blues shirt. I think he’s a great player.
