New Recruit Gets International Call-Up

The 21-year-old striker has been named in the senior squad for the first time for a tournament taking place this weekend when Finland will play Latvia and Oman in Bahrain.

Blues have confirmed that they have agreed a deal to sign the younger brother of Ipswich striker Shefki Kuqi in January for a fee of about £400,000.

Kuqi had impressed manager Steve Bruce and his coaching staff during a ten-day trial at the clubs Wast Hills training ground at the end of last month.
