Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish has confirmed he intends to sign on-loan West Ham midfielder Nigel Quashie.
Quashie, 30, has spent almost a month training with the Blues to prove his fitness having missed last season with a foot injury.
Manager Alex McLeish said: "We will try to do something after the international break.
"We have had him on a fitness programme because he has been out of the game for a long time, and he has looked good.
"He is on the verge of being able to play at the top again."
