Nigel Quashie is close to nailing a season-long loan deal at Birmingham City.
Quashie, who has been training with the Midlands outfit in recent weeks came through a behind-closed-doors friendly between City and local rivals Aston Villa with no adverse effects.
And it is thought that the former West Bromwich Albion midfielder could confirm a move to ther City Ground later this week.
Taking at the weekend, City boss Alex McLeish said:
"Itís an on-going process. He played in the behind closed doors game and acquitted himself well.
"We quite like what we see ans weíre maybe going to make a decision in a week or two. Itís just determining whether he can get through games week in, week out without picking up little niggly injuries.
"Itís not easy to establish that before you sign somebody, until you actually do it. But I would think his fitness side of things has improved over the last couple of weeks, to a level where heís pretty close.
"If he progresses the way he already has, then thereís a very good chance we will sign him."
