Colin Doyle is in eleventh heaven after penning a new deal at Blues which will keep him at St Andrew’s for another twelve months at least.
Doyle, who has developed a reputation as a penalty specialist will now extend his Birmingham City career into an eleventh senior campaign and will battle it out with Jack Butland for a place in Lee Clark’s starting line up.
Speaking to bcfc.com, the Cork born shot-stopper said: “I love it here at Blues. It’s a great club, a massive club. I’m pleased to have re-signed and I’m really looking forward to getting back in on Monday and seeing the lads and the new management staff.”
Doyle came through the Blues Academy and signed his first senior contract in 2003, since then the 27-year-old has made 30 league appearances for the club and featured in many of Birmingham City’s League and FA Cup campaigns.
The Irishman has also spent loan spells at Chester City, Nottingham Forest, Millwall and Coventry City.
Doyle’s ten years at the club were celebrated when he received a special award at the 2011/12 Player Awards Dinner.
