Upson to sign on Wednesday

Last updated : 22 January 2003 By Brian Cartlidge
The deal for the central defender seemed to have hit a snag earlier today when it was confirmed that Upson had been in talks with Leeds boss Terry Venables about a possible move to Elland Road.

However, the player was back in Birmingham today and after a medical on Tuesday evening, Upson will become Steve Bruce's sixth signing this month, on Wednesday.
