New-signing Jonathan Grounds is excited by the challenge of Sky Bet Championship football with Birmingham City.

The former Middlesbrough and Oldham Athletic defender became Blues' first acquisition of the summer after he penned a two-year deal with the club.

Speaking about his move, he said: "I'm really excited. I spoke to the manager this morning and it's something that I jumped at."

The 26-year-old went on to add, "It's a good opportunity for myself to be playing back in the Championship and what the manager wants to do I've bought into that as well so hopefully we can have a successful time while I'm here."
