McLeish looks to bring in trio

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish has admitted that it will be tough to find quality players to bolster his squad in the January transfer window.

The Scotsman has been given significant funds to spend by the club's new owners, but is loathe to splash the cash just for the sake of it.

Speaking after a 1-1 draw at Everton, McLeish told Sky Sports:"It won't be easy to pick players that will augment the squad because I'm very aware if I jump too high or maybe take a step too early for us.

"But we're hopeful we can bring in two or three players of quality that will certainly enhance the squad and make sure that we're not caught short for the second half of the season if we have injuries or suspensions.

"Carson Yeung's very pleased. We've had some great results since he came to the club. I think his first game was Arsenal away from home – we lost 3-1 but it was a decent performance.

"But I think before Carson came in the players were playing really well and they built on that confidence."
