Alex Hleb denies being unsettled at Birmingham


On-loan Barcelona midfielder Alex Hleb has dismissed suggestions that he is unsettled at Birmingham City.

Hleb, who spent three years in the Premier League with Arsenal, joined the Blues on a season-long loan in August.

During the recent international break the Belarus midfielder was quoted discussing his disillusionment with life at St Andrew's and the style of football Alex McLeish's side play.

However, Hleb insists he is happy at Birmingham and has no problems at his new club.

"I am very happy, really happy," he said."We have a very good coach. The team, the players – fantastic.

"Everything's good and I feel at home. I love it at Birmingham and I enjoy everything.

"Of course, we need to give a bit more in the games because we want to win, invest more, keep the ball more, score more, but we need to work hard on that.

"From the first day, it felt as if I knew the players for a long, long time.

"I never thought I would settle so quickly but it's happened and I'm very happy."
