Birmingham City have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Leroy Lita from Swansea City.

The 27-year-old has already passed his medical and put pen to paper, but his three-month emergency loan cannot go through until the loan window re-opens on Saturday.

Lita, though, is delighted to have agreed the move - which comes little over 12 months after he moved to South Wales from Middlesbrough in a £1.75million deal.

Blues boss Lee Clark told his club's official website: "I know Leroy very well having worked with him at Norwich during a loan spell in which he scored seven goals in 16 games.

"He's a proven goalscorer who has power and pace and there's no doubt that he'll add quality to my squad."
