Blues snap up Tiger

Posted: Thu 21 Nov 2013

Lee Clark has boosted his attacking ranks by signing Hull City striker Aaron McLean on an emergency loan.

The 30-year-old has signed a deal that will keep him at St. Andrew's until 1 January, 2014.

Blues have been left light in their forward ranks, following the recent season-ending knee injury sustained by Matt Green

McLean began his career at Leyton Orient, before having spells at Aldershot Town and Grays Athletic. A move to Peterborough followed, where he was a prolific scorer with 83 goals in 188 appearances, which helped the Posh to back-to-back promotions.

He left London Road to join Hull in 2011 and has subsequently made 83 appearances - scoring 12 times. He spent a short spell out on loan at Championship side Ipswich Town last season. 

McLean will wear first-team squad number 35 and is expected to be available for Saturday's visit of Blackpool (3pm kick-off).
