Manager Alex McLeish is hoping to secure an initial one-month loan deal for Nigel Quashie before Birmingham's next game against Burnley on October 18.

The West Ham midfielder, 30, has been training with the Championship club with a view to a move in the near future, and McLeish has confirmed an agreement is expected be sorted out within the next nine days or so.

"We would hope to tie Nigel up on a month's deal with a view to extending that, if he proves his fitness," said McLeish in the Birmingham Mail.

"Probably before Burnley we will get it done. With the amount of games coming after that he would be a welcome addition. He has trained hard for a month but his circumstances have been unfortunate as he lost his mother.

"So in between us keeping him and getting him fit, getting him to prove he is over his injuries because there is a tendency to come back and pick up niggles, it's been stop-start due to his mother being ill and her death.

"He's got things to tend there before he can immerse himself right back into it again and we are very sympathetic to his needs at the moment."
