Birmingham have agreed a deal to sign former Liverpool and Rangers defender Gregory Vignal.
Providing Vignal comes through a medical successfully, he will join Alex McLeish's squad on a one-year contract.
The 28-year-old left-back played for McLeish at Rangers and has pleased the Blues manager with his showing during a trial this summer.
McLeish told www.blues.premiumtv.co.uk: "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 approach.
"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."
