Birmingham confirm signing of striker Derbyshire

Birmingham City have announced the signing of Olympiakos striker Matt Derbyshire on a one-year loan deal.

Derbyshire, 24, joins for the 2010-11 campaign but could sign for Blues on a permanent deal at the end of the season if he is a success at St Andrew's.

The former England Under-21 international, who passed a medical on Monday, joined the Greek side from Blackburn Rovers in January 2009.

Derbyshire scored 11 goals in 26 games in Greece but returns to the Premier League and could face his former club at the weekend.

Derbyshire is the second striker that Birmingham have signed this summer following the capture of Serbia international Nikola Zigic. Alex McLeish has also recruited Enric Valles and Ben Foster.

Birmingham will seek to obtain international clearance for the transfer on Tuesday morning.
