Last updated : 12 September 2002 By Brian Cartlidge
Powell has been training with the Blues squad since his release from Pride Park in the summer and made a ninety minute appearance for the reserves against West Brom at The Hawthorns last week.

“We’ve been talking to Darryl and we expect him to sign by the end of the week,” manager Steve Bruce told the clubs official website.

“I’ve been impressed with him over the past two or three weeks and he’s got very good experience.

“He should sign a short-term deal which keep him at the club until Christmas.”
