BLUES NIP IN TO SIGN BUCK­LEY

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BIRM­ING­HAM have strength­ened their squad with the ar­rival of ex­cit­ing winger Will Buck­ley.

The rapid wide­man im­pressed at Rochdale,Wat­ford and Brighton be­fore his for­mer Seag­ulls boss Gus Poyet brought him to Sun­der­land in Au­gust 2014 for a fee of be­lieved to be £2.5m.

The 26-year-old made 24 out­ings for the Black Cats last sea­son but has not fea­tured for the Premier League side at all this term.

Leeds signed him in Oc­to­ber on a 93-day loan with a view to a per­ma­nent deal but he only made four ap­pear­ances as he strug­gled to se­cure a place un­der new boss Steve Evans and was re­called by Sun­der­land.
