Greg Stewart has signed a three-year contract at Birmingham after completing his move from Dundee and ending the long-running transfer saga.
The Dark Blues are understood to have received an initial £500,000 fee for the 26-year-old forward, who was in the final year of his contract, with the potential for more income from add-ons.
That could see the transfer fee rise to around £1million.
Stewart spoke to City’s Blues TV after his first training session. He said: “I’m glad to get it over the line and get the deal done and dusted. It’s dragged on a wee bit longer than I thought and I’m just glad to be here.”

Birmingham boss Gary Rowett had been keen to take Stewart to the club. The former Dundee talisman had his first opportunity to impress his new gaffer in the flesh today.
On his first training session, he joked: “We’ve done a few small games and hopefully he [Rowett] has seen that he’s not bought rubbish.”
