Blues completed the short-term signing of experienced defender Paul Robinson in September 2012. This was later extended until the end of the 2012/13 season.
Robinson, who made 37 appearances during his first season with Blues, started the campaign playing at left-back before moving into the centre of defence.
A former England Under-21 international, he began his career at his hometown club Watford before moving to West Bromwich Albion in 2003 and spending six years at the Hawthorns.
A season-long loan move to Bolton Wanderers was made permanent in 2010. His spell at the Reebok Stadium was briefly interrupted by a month-long loan to Leeds United in 2011/12 season.
