Football: PANDIANI DEAL CLOSE.
Bruce is also "hopeful" of snapping up a midfielder to join Mikael Forssell and Mehdi Nafti among the new faces.
Uruguayan striker Pandiani impressed on loan last season and the Premiership club want to sign him permanently from Deportivo, who are keen to offload him.
Birmingham have refused to meet Deportivo's pounds 2.9million asking but Bruce said: "The Pandiani deal is very close.
"He's flying in during the week, so hopefully we'll have some positive news then."
