Birmingham managed to seal a desperately late loan deal to sign Walter Pandiani from Deportivo La Coruna. Uruguayan marksman Pandiani will join Steve Bruce's side on loan until the end of the season, although they do not have an option to buy him in the summer. The 28-year-old had been looking to leave Estadio Riazor after falling out of favour with Depor coach Javier Irureta

i think its a good loan signing, he was linked to a few english teams.before this happened. am sure last season he got alot of goals for depor. and i think there is stories about irueata being a really defensive minded manager, any playes a lone striker alot. maybe he wasnt getting games and wanted out.

they must see something in him if they aint allowing it to become permanant

he scored on his debut


Walter Pandiani may not want to be in the West Midlands, but Birmingham City have cause to be glad he is. The Uruguayan took just 12 minutes to open his Blues account in a 2-1 win against Southampton.[/quote

and pennant was supposed to have been good too

there was claims he didnt really want to end up at birmingham, but these claims have been blasted


Birmingham City have refuted suggestions that new loan signing Walter Pandiani is disappointed to be at the Midlands club.

The striker nicknamed 'The Rifle' had reportedly hoped to join Serie A outfit Fiorentina, but settled for a move to Steve Bruce's Blues.

However, the St Andrews outfit have stated Pandiani's remarks are from an old interview and that nothing could be further from the truth.

Harry Redknapp feels Southampton have grounds for protest, if reports Walter Pandiani signed for Birmingham City after the transfer deadline prove to be correct. Blues pushed through a loan deal late on transfer deadline day for Pandiani, but reports on Sunday suggested the paperwork was ratified after the midnight deadline. A Premier League spokesman confirmed the move was finalised after the deadline, but was sanctioned due to an error with the fax machine at their headquarters.

Pandiani made a sparkling debut, scoring in Birmingham's 2-1 win over Southampton, and Redknapp believes the Football Association need to look into the claims he signed after the deadline. Redknapp fielded an ineligible player against Aston Villa in the League Cup in 2000 and saw his side bow out after the authorities ordered a replay. The Saints chief believes there are similarities and is looking for The FA to step in.

Birmingham City are confident there will be no probe conducted into Walter Pandiani's move to St Andrews.

The Uruguay international linked up with Blues on loan from Deportivo La Coruna on the cusp of the transfer deadline last week.

There had been reports the deal was completed after the deadline and this was confirmed by a Premier League spokesman, who admitted the delay was due to a jammed fax machine.

No wonder Harry is complaining. He scored again yesterday in the defeat of Liverpool and he does look a decent player.

Birmingham have confirmed their desire to sign Uruguayan star Walter Pandiani on a permanent basis, which could signal the departure of Clinton Morrison.

Pandiani - nicknamed The Rifle - is on loan at St Andrews for the rest of the season from Spanish giants Deportivo La Coruna.

He is already a firm fans' favourite after two goals in his first three games and now Blues chairman David Gold insists the club will look to tie up a deal for Pandiani.

I'm not surprised, he looks a well above average player. Well suited to the prem by the looks of it aswell. I hope they don't ask too much for him though and Birmingham had an option on him in the loan deal..

yer, he was at depor banging in goals and all of a sudden, he was dropped, so i aint sure if there is issues there?

but the blues have done well to pick him. and his repuation as the rifle is looking justified

well.. they do want to sign him full time


Birmingham have opened talks with Deportivo La Coruna about the permanent signing of Walter Pandiani.

The Uruguayan - nicknamed The Rifle - has become an instant fans favourite at St Andrews, since joining The Blues on transfer deadline day.

He has bagged two goals in five starts and that has been enough to convince Steve Bruce that he wants him on a permanent basis.

Walter Pandiani is close to agreeing a permanent move to Birmingham but the fee demanded by Deportivo La Coruna remains a stumbling block, according to his agent Francis Martin. Pandiani has expressed his desire to move to St Andrews after quickly becoming a cult hero with the fans during his loan spell. But Deportivo are looking for a fee in the region of around 4million while Blues believe a 3million figure is more realistic.

they aint that far off if its a million. am sure something could be negoitaed but this guy in fairness, has played well and scored goals for them

3 million would be a very good price for him. At first it seemed that he thought he had made a mistake in going to Birmingham on loan, but he seems to have settled in and wants to stay. Would be a very good signing if they manage it as he has done a very good job for them so far.

Deportivo La Coruna are ready to offload Walter Pandiani for around 4.5 million euros only months after saying that he would only be allowed to leave for nearly treble that amount.

The Galician club have been stunned by the Uruguayan's constant attacks through the media, where he claimed that players turn up for training drunk, if they turn up at all. Birmingham City are in the driving seat to sign Pandiani as he is currently enjoying a loan spell at the Premiership side.

They have to snap him up at that price, its much less than what they wanted originally. Hes settled in well and looks a decent player.

yer, i think that will be a superb signing, hes class and i think he will score more if they add a few more players. and with pennant doing well. he will score more.

do you see him hanging about for more than a year though? if he signs, i just have this feeling he wont honour a 4 or 5 year deal

He said he really like it there and he could well sign a 4 year deal, unless someone comes in and snaps him up before Birmingham do. There is quite a bit of interest in him and i wouldn't be that surprised if he did go. Its not like Birmingham are going to be challenging for a Euro place at the moment, so he might want better things..
