Striker Blake seals Leeds switch
Robbie Blake in action for Birmingham
Blake joined Birmingham in January
Birmingham striker Robbie Blake has completed his move to Leeds on a three-year deal by passing a medical.

The clubs had agreed an undisclosed fee for Blake, who moved to Birmingham from Burnley for 1.25m in January.

"It's a step back in terms of divisions but hopefully I can get back into the Premier League with Leeds," the 29-year-old told BBC Radio Leeds.

"With the quality of players we have got, I'm sure there will be no end of goals going in."

Boss Kevin Blackwell added on Leeds' official website: "He will offer us something different in attack and I am really delighted. It shows how far the club has come."

Blake could make his first appearance for Leeds at his former club Darlington in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday evening.
