Greg Stewart: Moves south of border

Greg Stewart has signed a three-year contract at Birmingham City after completing his move from Scottish Premiership outfit Dundee.

Dundee are understood to have received an initial £500,000 fee for the 26-year-old forward, who was in the final year of his contract, with the potential for more income from add-ons.

Stewart’s departure was confirmed after midfielder Gary Harkins left for Ayr in a player-coach role after being frozen out of the first-team picture in the early part of this season.

Stewart scored 32 goals in just over two seasons at Dens Park and was twice nominated for PFA Scotland player of the year.

The versatile attacking player also weighed in with a number of assists from wide areas but Stewart was absent with a minor injury as Dundee began their Ladbrokes Premiership campaign with a 3-1 victory over Ross County last week, and goalkeeper Scott Bain believes that win shows they can cope without him and Kane Hemmings, who left for Oxford the previous week.

Ahead of Saturday’s visit of Rangers, Bain said: “He’s a top player, he brings goals and assists.

“But we showed last week up at Ross County, if he doesn’t play we can still dig in and get a good performance and result.
