Birmingham confirm Clark appointment

Former Huddersfield boss Lee Clark has been appointed the new manager of Birmingham City.

Clark, 39, will now be tasked with taking Blues back to the Premier League after succeeding Chris Hughton in the St Andrew's hotseat.

The former Newcastle and Sunderland midfielder made an impression on acting chairman Peter Pannu during two rounds of interviews and the Birmingham chief believes Clark is capable of returning the club to the top flight.

"I was impressed by Lee's tenacity, zest and his ambition," Pannu said. "He is enthused by the challenge ahead and is determined to make Birmingham City a real force in the Championship this season. Judging from his record at Huddersfield, I know he has the capability to do exactly that.

"The shortlist of four, out of the 22 applicants, that we put together meant that the appointment of Lee Clark was carefully studied and was a thorough and informed decision by the board. I now expect the fans to give him their full support.''

Clark, who will be officially unveiled at a press conference at St Andrew's at 1230 BST on Wednesday, was axed by Huddersfield in February and will face his old club in this season's Championship after his successor Simon Grayson took the Terriers up through the League One play-offs.

Birmingham were not able to enjoy similar success in the play-offs as Hughton's side were eliminated at the semi-final stage by Blackpool following a long season that included an impressive run in the Europa League.
