Vignal signs Birmingham contract
Published : 13 Aug 2009 17:27:45
Vignal, 28, has signed a one-year deal at St Andrew's with a 12-month option after leaving Lens. Blues boss Alex McLeish, who worked with Vignal during his time in charge of Rangers, has moved for the Frenchman to cover the problematic left-back spot with David Murphy currently sidelined through injury. "He's a good athlete, he's mobile and he's strong and aggressive," McLeish told the club's official website. "He played a season with me at Rangers when we won the league and it was a very successful campaign for him then, so I know what Greg can bring us. "I've kept in touch with him and his family and I know he's been bursting over the last couple of years to get back to the top league."
