Bowyer joins Birmingham from West Ham

Lee Bowyer joins Birmingham City

Birmingham City have signed English international Lee Bowyer on a free transfer.

Bowyer had been with West Ham until the end of the 2008-09 season and had spent period since January 2009 with the Blues in the Championship.

The 32 year old has signed on a two year deal with the St.Andrews club.

Blues manager Alex Mcleish was delighted to make his seventh signing of the summer transfer window :
I'm very pleased that Lee has signed because he's a proven player," said the Blues boss.

You don't often get a player of Lee's calibre for nothing these days.

There's no transfer fee but there's a going rate in terms of wages and he deserves that.

We believe he's certainly still got the ability to justify his status as a Premier League player.

Bowyer follows Stephen Carr , Giovanny Espinoza , Christain Benitez , Scott Dann , Joe Hart and Roger Johnson to the club.
