Obafemi Martins Returns to England

Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins has joined Premier League side Birmingham City on a six month loan deal from Russian club Rubin Kazan.

The striker, who last played in England for Newcastle, will stay with Birmingham until the end of the season.

Martins became a father for the first time in December, and his desire to be close to his young family is said to be the major reason behind the move.

He joined Rubin Kazan from German club Wolfsburg at the start of the current campaign, but has yet to light up the Russian top division.
