Birmingham City have signed Sweden international midfielder Kerim Mrabti on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old has signed an 18-month contract with the Championship club, with the option of a further one-year extension.

Mrabti was a free agent after leaving Djurgardens in November, having scored six times in 24 appearances for the Swedish top-flight club.

He has played three times for Sweden, including two appearances in 2018.

Mrabti is not available for Friday night's Championship game at Norwich, but Blues say he will "link up with the first-team squad next week".

He is the one permitted signing for Blues in the January window, following their transfer embargo last summer - and the club's continued monitoring under EFL guidance.
