Boss Hopeful Of Bowyer Signing

Last updated : 02 June 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Bowyer joined Blues on loan from the Hammers in January and played a big part in helping the club return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

However, Bowyer has now returned to Upton Park and Mcleish is waiting to hear from the former Newcastle and Leeds United midfielder about whether he would like a permanent move to St Andrews.

"We are hoping to sign Lee," McLeish told the News of the World.

"We are just waiting on answers from him."
