Birmingham sign Tainio on loan from Sunderland

Birmingham City have signed Sunderland midfielder Teemu Tainio on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old Finnish international, who has been capped 46 times by his country, joined the Black Cats from Tottenham in July 2008.

He has featured in 23 games for Sunderland and scored the opening goal in their recent 4-1 Carling Cup triumph over Norwich.

Tainio signed a deal at White Hart Lane when he left Auxerre in July 2005 and went on to play 83 times for Spurs.

He began his career playing for TP-47 and then FC Haka in his homeland before joining Auxerre in 1997.

He made 150 appearances for the French club, playing his part in guiding them into the Champions League in 2002 and lifting the French Cup in 2003.

Tainio is currently with the Finland squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Azerbaijan on Saturday and Liechtenstein next Wednesday.
