Birmingham manager Harry Redknapp has been reunited with Kevin Bond after appointing him as assistant boss for a fifth time.

The Sky Bet Championship club announced Bond’s appointment on Wednesday on a one-year deal.

The 59-year-old Bond previously worked alongside Redknapp at Portsmouth, Southampton, Tottenham and QPR.

He had a four-month spell as Aston Villa assistant manager last season, either side of stints as boss of Hong Kong Pegasus in the Hong Kong Premier League.

Bond’s appointment completes Redknapp’s backroom team for the 2017-18 season, joining first-team coach Paul Groves, goalkeeper coach Kevin Hitchcock and Lee Carsley as head professional development coach.

Bond’s father John was boss at St Andrews for 16 months in the late 1980s.
