Boss transfer fee agreed

Aston Villa have agreed an amount of compensation with Birmingham City for the 'transfer' of manager Alex McLeish.

The news ends the threat of court action between the two second city rivals after Birmingham had threatened Villa with legal consequences following the Scotsman's controversial defection.

But the clubs announced on Monday that an "agreement has been reached between the parties ending the legal disputes surrounding Alex McLeish's departure."

Their joint statement says "Aston Villa has agreed to pay Birmingham City an undisclosed figure following negotiations whereby the parties have agreed to bring to an end all disputes."

McLeish left Birmingham after the club won the League Cup - its first trophy in 48 years - and was then relegated from the Premier League.
