AUS­TRALIAN de­fender Shane Lowry has joined Birm­ing­ham fol­low­ing his re­lease from Ley­ton Ori­ent.

The 26-year-old, once of cross-town ri­vals As­ton Villa, has penned a deal with the Blues un­til the end of the sea­son fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful trial at St An­drews.

And Lowry ad­mits it is a re­lief to fi­nally have his fu­ture sorted out.

“I was here three or four weeks ago and played a cou­ple of games and I’m ex­cited to come to a club of this size,” he said.“I’m glad that it’s fi­nally sorted and hope­fully I can kick on now.

“I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted to be here. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.”
