Birmingham City is happy to confirm that, as a period of leave to deal with an important family matter comes towards an end, midfielder Keith Fahey has resumed training

The circumstances that required Fahey to return to Ireland mean that he has begun a period of training with Dublin club, Shamrock Rovers, before his planned return to Blues in a few weeks time.

Explaining the decision, manager Lee Clark said: “Keith has been out of the game for quite some time so his and our interests are best served by him doing what amounts to a full pre-season and we have requested that he would do this with the top club in Ireland – Shamrock Rovers. 

"I am pleased that Keith has now started this programme and I expect it will hasten his return to first-team action.”
