Birmingham City: Diego Fabbrini and Jonathan Spector leave club

Diego Fabbrini
Diego Fabbrini has not scored in a total of 28 appearances for Birmingham

Birmingham defender Jonathan Spector has joined MLS side Orlando City, while forward Diego Fabbrini has joined Italian side Spezia Calcio on loan.

Spector, 30, who was Blues' longest-serving player, making 179 appearances after signing from West Ham in 2011, mutually agreed to cancel his contract.

Fabbrini's loan spell runs until June, with a view to a permanent deal.

The 26-year-old had a loan spell with Blues in the 2014-15 season and signed for £1.5m from Watford in January 2016.

"I am a little bit disappointed and sad that Jonathan Spector will be leaving us," manager Gianfranco Zola said.

"He's going to go home and I wish him all the best."
