A big welcome to Mauro Zarate, Birmingham’s loan signing who arrived at St Andrews this week and had this to say:

I am very excited to be here. I wasn’t happy in Qatar so when this chance appeared, I was willing to take it.
The Premier League is the best league in the world and this team (Birmingham) is good and I think it can move forward.
I know Birmingham have been down towards the bottom of the table but in a way it is nice to be playing with something at stake and not being in the middle of the league where nothing matters.
That appeals to me. Every game is going to be important. It is not a case of playing for nothing. My message to the supporters is that Birmingham will stay in the Premier League – and I will do everything I can to help.
