Birmingham City have signed Poland international Dariusz Dudka on a short term deal.
The holding midfielder’s deal will keep him at St. Andrews until January 1st, pending an international clearance.
Dudka can also play at full back or as a centre half so his versatility will be important for Lee Clark’s side in the coming months.
The Birmingham City boss told the club’s official website the fans will have to wait to see Dudka make his debut, “Dariusz spent a long time out and he won’t be involved before the international break. As we saw last week (during Blues U21s’ 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town U21s), it’s been a long time since he played a competitive match and, as a result, he will need a mini pre-season.”
Blues’ new signing was released by Levante in the summer after playing just once in the league for the Spanish side, but has previously played for Amika Wronki and Wisla Krakow in Poland and most notably French side Auxerre.
With Auxerre, Dudka played in the Champions League along with playing in three major tournaments for his national side.
Dudka will wear the number 34 shirt for Birmingham and could make his home debut on November 23rd against Blackpool.
