Birmingham defender Paul Robinson has penned a new one-year contract which includes a further 12-month option.

The experienced 34-year-old initially joined Blues on a one-month deal in late September but soon proved his worth and went on to remain at St Andrew's for the rest of last term.

Robinson made a total of 37 appearances at left-back and then centre-half as he proved a valuable addition to Lee Clark's squad.

And Clark has now moved to tie down the veteran on a new deal which will see him remain at the midlands club.

Robinson joins Mitch Hancox, Colin Doyle, Will Packwood, Akwasi Asante and Amari'i Bell in penning fresh terms, one-year options have been taken up on Chris Burke and Callum Reilly while Ryan Higgins has also signed his first professional deal.

It is hoped Wade Elliott and Jonathan Spector will also soon put pen to paper.
