Birmingham trialist Boukary Drame is confident of earning a move to the Premier League new boys. The Senegal left-back is currently on trial at St Andrews and is keen to impress Blues boss Alex McLeish.

Drame is contracted to Ligue 1 side Sochaux but feels his future lies elsewhere.

He said: "I was on loan last season at Real Sociedad. I am here now to show Birmingham I want to join them.

"The Premier League is for me the best league. I am settling well here and I want to play in this team.

"The coach at Sochaux (Francis Gillot) does not want me, but that is football.

"Hopefully I will earn a contract at Birmingham."
