United outcast Nigel Quashie is on the verge of completing a season-long loan move to Birmingham City.The former West Bromwich Albion and Portsmouth midfielder has failed to feature for the Hammers since March 2007 following a mystery 'foot injury' that has plagued him ever since.
However he has spent this week trianing with the Championship club, and City boss Alex McLeigh has confirmed that a deal to take the ex-Scottish international to the City Ground should be tied up sometime next week.
"Nigel is training with us although he went back to London earlier in the week for personal reasons," said McLeish. "But we're hoping to get him back in.
"He's looking very good and he's definitely got a lot of quality but it's just a question of his fitness levels. I would like something to happen there and that will be up to Nigel."
Quashie was signed by Alan Curbishley in January 2007 but made just eight appearances for the club before sustaining the injury.
