Nikola Zigic will be fondly remembered by Birmingham City supporters for his time at the club. 

The Serbian international arrived at Birmingham on a four-year deal in the region of £6million and was a statement signing for the Blues.

The big target man arrived from Valencia and played a key role for Birmingham City over the next five years.

He had an eventful debut, coming on against Sunderland in the 58th minute as Birmingham were 2-0 and helped them claw the game back to 2-2.

Who started in goal in the 2011 League Cup final?

His first goal for the club came shortly after in a 3-1 win in the League Cup against MK Dons and scored his first league goal against Arsenal.

His most memorable moment in a Birmingham shirt came when he scored the winner in the League Cup quarter-final against rivals Aston Villa, a competition Blues went onto win.

He opened the scoring in the final against Arsenal and played a key role and with one minute remaining and the scores level, Zigic flicked on a long clearance for Obafemi Martins to pounce on and score the winner.

The club was under financial pressure to sell the Serbian international but Zigic has admitted he was always happy at the club, and any sale would depend solely on Birmingham City.

Zigic still had some big moments in a Blues shirt as he played a key role in Birmingham surviving on the last day of the 2013/14 season. With 10 minutes left to play and two goals down, Zigic scored and played a big role in the equaliser as his header fell to Paul Caddis.

So what is Zigic up to now? 

After leaving at the end of his contract in the 2014/15 season, there’s no doubt he created many fantastic memories for Birmingham City fans.

Zigic retired after he left the Blues, as injuries took their toll on the 6ft 8 inch forward. He moved back to Spain where he did trial for third division side Torre Levantee, but decided it was the right time to finish his career.

He will however, remain a popular figure at St Andrew’s even now his playing career has come to an end.
