Spector stay in England with a move to Birmingham
U.S. international defender Jonathan Spector has signed a two-year contract with Birmingham City of the English League Championship.
Spector, 25, spent the last five seasons at West Ham and joins Birmingham on a free transfer after his contract expired this summer. A member of the 2010 FIFA World Cup team, he has 31 caps for the United States.
"I'm delighted to be here and to be part of this club," Spector told Birmingham City's official website. "It's a big club and I've heard a lot of great things about the manager Chris Hughton."
"I'm looking forward to start training and getting with the team as soon as possible. The first game is less than a week away now. So I'm trying to get myself fit and in contention."
The move makes him neighbors with Brad Guzan and Eric Lichaj, who play for Birmingham-based Aston Villa.
