Birmingham boss McLeish: West Ham's Quashie still under consideration

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish says he's close to dealing in West Ham midfielder Nigel Quashie.

"It's an on-going process," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail. "He played in the behind closed doors game and acquitted himself well.

"We quite like what we see. We're maybe going to make a decision in a week or two.

"It's just determining whether he can get through games week in, week out without picking up little niggly injuries.

"It's 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 he's pretty close.

"I think that if he progresses the way he already has, then there's a very good chance we will sign him."
