Danns completes Birmingham move
Neil Danns
Danns scored 16 goals for the U's last season
Birmingham City have signed Colchester midfielder Neil Danns.

Danns, 23, who scored 16 goals for the U's last term, has penned a three-year deal at City for an initial fee of 500,000 that could rise to 850,000.

He started his career as a trainee at Blackburn but was forced to drop down two divisions to get a first team spot with Colchester.

Danns told Birmingham's website: "I had a great time at Colchester and it kick-started my career."

He added: "But when a club the size of Birmingham come in for you, it's hard to say no."

Birmingham boss Steve Bruce said: "We are delighted to capture the services of such an exciting young player.

"He plays with tremendous commitment and will be a huge asset to our team."
