ROBINSON SIGNS FOR BIRMINGHAM
Curtis Davies’ Club, Birmingham City, has signed the English defender Paul Robinson on a brief contract of 1 month. The manager of Birmingham City, Lee Clark, confirmed the signing of Robinson yesterday.
Robinson’s previous club was Bolton Wanderers. His contract with Bolton expired at the end of the last season and due to his inconsistent form, Bolton decided not to extend his contract. He was not approached by too many clubs during the pre season transfer window and he was without a contract till now.
Some key defenders of the Birmingham City team are injured at the moment and the defense of the team has looked pretty weak in the current season so far. The captain of the team, Stephen Carr, is suffering from a severe knee injury, while, Paul Caddis has gone through a shoulder surgery and he has been ruled out of the team for the next three months. David Murphy is also out of the team due to a hamstring injury.
Lee Clark was looking for an experienced defender and he decided to sign Robinson. However, it’s a very short contract which will get expired on 26th of October.
In the last season, Robinson’s performance was not that good. He looked completely out of touch in the first half of the last season. He was placed on loan to Leeds United in March 2012 for a month. He played a few matches for them, but, didn’t manage to make a mark.
Robinson had been practicing with Toronto FC since the last one month. After signing Robinson, Lee Clark said, “Unfortunately, some of our key players are injured and we badly needed the services of a defender who has got some experience. Robinson is a fantastic left back and he is experienced as well. So, we decided to bring him in the squad for a month.”
Birmingham City will play its next match against Brighton & Hove Albion on 29th of September at Amex Stadium.
