I think you’ll see a very different Birmingham.

The Blues manager is certain his team is ‘going to be worth watching’.

Blues summer trading saw 14 players brought in, either permanently or on loan.

The new recruits included a Club record signing Jota, one of three Brentford players added within a whirlwind 24 hour spell.

Redknapp told bcfc.com that he’s delighted with the business done, especially as competition for players is getting harder and harder.

“It’s been good. I think we have brought some good players in. Exciting players and I’m looking forward to working with them.

“There’s been a lot of ins and outs, we’re level – 14 in, 14 out – and I’m delighted with what we have done.

“Every day you see 10, 12, 15 million pound deals in the Championship.

“It is getting harder and harder to compete.

“But I have had great support from the owners and everybody and I feel we have got a good team, it’s going to be an exciting team to watch.”

Speaking about the deals struck in the run-up to and on deadline day, Redknapp said: “We took three lads from Brentford right at the end.

“The centre-half, who is a winner. The boy who plays off the right, Jota, he’s got great ability. And an outstanding full-back – three good players for us.

“Jason Lowe is a proper professional. Captain, England Under-21 international, a really good player, great lad to have at your football club.”

Jota’s addition is particularly one to whet the appetitive, and Blues also rounded-off their transactions by signing highly-rated Everton starlet Liam Walsh.

“He’s a talent, Jota. Great ability. He’s my type of player. He can do things, beat people, score and make goals.

“Liam Walsh, he’s a typical lad from the Liverpool area. That kind of character. He’s another real talent. He’s a little tiger. He can play, he digs, he will be scrapping for a place in the team for sure.”

Redknapp is now keen for the new-look Blues to take shape.

“It’s been a difficult start to the season, but I knew it would be. First five games, nothing happened that surprised me.

“Now we are up and running and let’s judge this team after 20-odd games. I think you’ll see a very different Birmingham. It’s going to be a team worth watching.”
