Jonathan Spector is one of the U.S. men's national team players that Jurgen Klinsmann will be evaluating during his opening weeks as national team coach, and it appears that he'll have a platform for which to showcase his skills.
Spector, a free agent, is reportedly on the verge of signing a two-year deal with an option for a third with League Championship club Birmingham City.
Spector had an interesting season with West Ham last season, going from being kept off the matchday roster to blossoming in a central midfield role. Now it appears that he'll be able to contend for a place either at fullback or in central midfield with Birmingham, which will participate in the UEFA Europa League via its Carling Cup victory while trying to reclaim a place in the Premier League.
What do you think about the potential move? Do you think Birmingham is a good landing place for Spector?
