Beausejour on board at Birmingham

On a busy day for Blues, the winger joined Alex McLeish’s side for
an undisclosed fee from Club America in Mexico. Beausejour joined
defender Martin Jiranek and midfielder Alexander Hleb in arriving
at the club on Tuesday. Beausejour, 26, is an exciting left-sided
attacker who plays primarily on the left but also up front and had
an impressive World Cup campaign. McLeish told the club website:
“Beausejour is an excellent, left-sided midfielder who had a
tremendous World Cup with Chile – he was their star player against
Spain – and also played very well in a pre-season friendly against
Manchester City recently. “He has been on our list of targets for a
long time because he is strong and quick with the ability to beat
his man and get crosses in.”
