Birmingham boss McLeish ready for "busy January"

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is preparing for a "busy January".

"I'm preparing for a busy January," he told the Blues website. "It's already started with us looking at prospective players coming through.

"I've got to make some changes and do some things differently because if nothing changes, nothing changes. We've got to see if we can add a bit of quality to the squad.

"We're trying to get players in that we really know and have done a fair bit of research on. If we can add three or four players then it should make us stronger."

Regarding the budget available to him, McLeish added: "I don't think there's any hard or fast numbers.

"I think it's a case of me saying to David, Karren and the chairman that I'd like to get that player and he'll make us better.

"If we can guarantee that I'm sure I'll get the backing within reason."
