Birmingham boss Alex McLeish has yet to decide whether to sign Gregory Vignal but admits the defender has made a good impression on himself and the club's supporters.
The 28-year-old is on trial from French club Lens and put in a promising display in the friendly draw against Sporting Gijon on Saturday.
"Gregory didn't do himself any harm at all against Gijon - it was a really positive performance and he showed all his experience," McLeish told www.bcfc.com.
"He's a good athlete, he's mobile and he's strong and aggressive.
"I think he stirred the fans up and British fans appreciate that kind of thing."
