BIRMINGHAM TARGET PREMIER LEAGUE SURVIVAL

Birmingham are aiming to remain in the Premier League this season according to manager Alex McLeish. McLeish’s side were heavily tipped to be relegated last season, but surprised many by finishing in ninth place on their return to the Premier League, thanks to a miserly defence and a stellar season from on-loan goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Birmingham have seen Hart return to his parent club, Manchester City, but McLeish was able to acquire Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster and Valencia striker Nikola Zigic for £6 million each.
