Former Swindon Town winger Alex Pritchard has completed a move to Birmingham City for an undisclosed fee from Sunderland.

The 30-year-old joins up with his former manager Tony Mowbray at St Andrews as he signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The Blues currently sit 20th in the Championship, seven points safe from relegation, but are on their third manager of the season as John Eustace and Wayne Rooney have both been dismissed by Birmingham.

The winger withdrew himself from selection at Sunderland ahead of this move after spending three years at the Stadium of Light, where he made the Championship play-offs under Mowbray last season as well as earning promotion from League One.

Speaking to club media, Pritchard said: “I am happy. My future has been well speculated for a while now and I am just glad to get everything done and just settled and, hopefully, I can just crack on with football.”

Pritchard joined Swindon on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, along with Massimo Luongo, Grant Hall, and Ryan Mason, scoring eight goals in 44 appearances, including scoring one and setting up another in a win at Loftus Road against QPR in the League Cup, setting up a home tie with Chelsea.
