Birmingham Release Brilliant Home Alone Themed Announcement Of Kevin Long Signing

Birmingham have signed the 32-year-old and 17 time capped Irish international Kevin Long from Burnley.

The centre-back heads to the Blues following a disappointing first half to the season for him, where game time has been difficult to come by.

The club made the most out of their announcement with a fantastic Home Alone themed video, welcoming the Corkman to the team.

It uses the iconic 'Kevin's not here' scene from Home Alone 2, which shows the moment that the McCallister family realise that they have left their son Kevin at home.

However, in Birmingham's version, Kevin, of course, has not been left at home.

Following the signing, Long sat for his first interview as a Birmingham player.

"I am really looking forward to it, to be honest. It has been a tough season for me personally at Burnley. Being at Burnley has been a big part of my career since I moved to England at 19 and it has just felt like the right time to move on.

"Birmingham is a massive club and I am really excited to be here.


"I don't like describing myself to be honest. From people I've been speaking to, that's probably how they'd describe me [commanding centre-half]. I think I communicate well, try to be a leader on the pitch, and hopefully that's what I can do.

"I haven't got much game time this season. I spoke to the manager last night, he spoke really well of the place and I know a few of the guys that are here already, so when the opportunity came along I was really excited to come here, and I just want to get going now, I'm itching to get playing."
