Birmingham break transfer record

New boys to the Premiership, Birmingham City have broken their transfer record and signed Ecuadorian striker Christian Benitez on a three year deal from Mexican club Santos Laguna.

The fee is believed to be in the region of £9million which is far higher than what Heskey was acquired for in 2004(£6.25million).

The player has scored 31 goals in 58 appearances for the Mexican side spread over two seasons.

He has also made 17 appearances for the national side but so far has no goals to show of it.
