Morrison deal almost done

Last updated : 22 July 2002 By Palace Dan
Clinton Morrison is poised to sign for Birmingham City later this afternoon, with Andy Johnson moving in the opposite direction. Palace owner Simon Jordan has accepted Birmingham's offer of £4m plus Johnson, and the formalities should be completed today. Morrison will team up with former Palace manager Steve Bruce at St.Andrews.
There is also the possibility that the worlds worst kept transfer secret will also be completed this afternoon, with the transfer of Jovan Kirovski to Birmingham. Bruce is a known admirer of Kirovski, and his refusal to sign a new contract at Palace fuelled the suspicion that he would be off to Birmingham as soon as possible. Kirovski blamed Trevor Francis for his omission from the USA world cup squad after he was left out of the Palace first team for the last six months.
