Chris Hughton has been appointed as Birmingham's new manager - just 10 days after Alex McLeish resigned to take charge of Aston Villa.

Former Newcastle boss Hughton was confirmed by the midlands club as McLeish's replacement on Wednesday.

Hughton edged ahead of Roberto Di Matteo in the battle to take charge of the Carling Cup holders.
