Former Grand Prix star Chris Harris has completed his loan switch to the Birmingham Brummies for 2013.

The Cornishman, who reportedly turned down numerous offers to keep him at parent club Coventry, replaces Danish rider Bjarne Pedersen as the club’s No.1 and links up with fellow Team Great Britain international Danny King in the side.

The Perry Barr outfit has also been linked with Josh Auty and Ben Barker, while Italian reserve Nicolas Covatti looks set to return on a 3.00 average.

After 2011 Birmingham top gun Krzysztof Kasprzak and Pedersen failed to set the Elite League alight in red and yellow, Brummies hope Harris will lead from the front.

Joint team manager Phil Morris said: “Chris is the perfect type of rider we want at the Brummies. He’s fully committed and the fans will always be assured that he will give 100 percent.”
