Sunderland's Tainio happy at Birmingham

Sunderland midfielder Teemu Tainio is pleased with his first weeks on-loan at Birmingham City.

The Finn said: "I've been here for three weeks now and I've been pleased with the manager, the training and the players, it all looks good.

"I'm not really a big complainer, I just do what they ask me to do and that's how I work. So maybe the manager likes that.

"Lots of Scandinavian players have that approach where they like to work hard and maybe we are a little bit shy from time to time. We just focus on our work and we think that's the best way.

"I just get on with the job."
