Birmingham City sign Lee Novak

Birmingham City have this afternoon completed the signing of Huddersfield Town striker Lee Novak on a three-year contract.

The former Non-League striker with Gateshead has been a part of the Terriers squad for the past few years, where he played under new boss Lee Clark.

The twenty-four year old will join on a free transfer, as his contract runs out at the end of June, and will join up with his former manager who was wrongfully sacked last season.

Manager Lee Clark mentioned on the clubs official website: “Lee’s looking to progress and coming to Birmingham City is another progression in his career,”

“The Blues crowd will take him because they’ll see the work ethic of the player. They’ll see everything that he gives and he’ll quickly establish himself as a popular player with the fans.

“I gave Lee his opportunity in the Football League and for three years he was absolutely magnificent for me. He was what you call the second striker and played the role just off Jordan Rhodes.

“He’s strong and he gets goals. We’re looking forward to getting him on board with what we’re trying to do here and I know he understands the way I want to play the game.

“I think he’ll fit in really well with the new group we’re putting together.”
