New Birmingham City signing David Cotterill tells BBC WM he was glad to "get the deal over the line", having been linked to Blues for several months.
Wales international Cotterill was in the Doncaster Rovers side that Blues relegated on the final day of the Championship season.
"It's strange how football works. That's the way it goes," he told BBC WM.
Cotterill scored in Rovers' 1-1 draw St Andrew's last season. "We were trailing 1-0 so it was nice to get any goal," he added. "Fortunately, it was a good one."
