Birmingham Make Brighton's David Stockdale First Signing of Harry Redknapp's Reign
Birmingham City have confirmed the signing of 31-year-old goalkeeper David Stockdale, having snatched him up on a free transfer.
The Leeds-born stopper - who helped Brighton seal promotion to the English top flight last season - has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with his new side, which should see him remain until 2020.
A statement on Birmingham's official website reads: "Blues have pulled off a major transfer coup by signing promotion-winning goalkeeper David Stockdale from Brighton & Hove Albion.
"Stockdale has penned a three-year deal with Blues which begins on 1 July runs until the summer of 2020 Stockdale’s current contract at Brighton expires at the end of this month. The Sussex club wanted to keep him but he moves to St. Andrew’s on a free transfer."
Birmingham finished in 19th-place in the EFL Championship in the last campaign, but Harry Redknapp will be hoping to oversee promotion in the next, having made a quality signing in Stockdale.
