Many Birmingham City fans have taken to Twitter to react to Jeremie Bela’s comments about his switch to St Andrew’s.
Following a contract dispute with former side Albacete, the winger was allowed to join the Blues on a free transfer on Wednesday after being released by the Spanish side.
Having received international clearance yesterday, Bela could be in line to make his debut for Birmingham in their clash with Fulham tomorrow.
One of Albacete’s star performers last season, the 26-year-old scored 12 goals as he helped his side secure a third place finish in the Segunda Division.

However, following the club’s failure to secure promotion to La Liga via the play-offs, Bela opted to call time on his brief stint at the Estadio Carlos Belmonte.
Speaking to Birmingham’s official YouTube account about his decision to join the club, Bela said: “I’m finally here, I’m very happy.
“It’s a true love story between the club and me and now we are together I hope it is the start of a good adventure.”
Upon seeing Bela’s comments, many Birmingham fans reacted in a positive manner on Twitter.
Here are some of the best responses from the club’s supporters…
