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.”
