Birmingham City look set to miss out on one of their top targets this January with Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek reportedly on the brink of joining top of the table Brighton and Hove Albion.

Reports on social media site Twitter suggest that the young midfielder is likely to join the Seagulls ahead of Blues who were believed to be the front runners heading into the transfer window.

New Blues boss Gianfranco Zola was thought to have identified Loftus-Cheek as the man he wanted to bolster his midfield but it now looks as though he is set to miss out on the 20-year-old.

The powerful midfielder is just one of the names that has been linked with the club since the window opened over the weekend, with fellow team mate Dominic Solanke being another name heavily linked with a move to the Midlands.

  • Do you believe everything you read on Twitter. Will he get the first team football he wants at Brighton? They are also licked with Lansbury. Would they need both I don’t think so Lansbury would be a permanent move for them witch Loftus-Cheek wouldn’t be. I ant saying they ant interested because they probably are but he would be seconded choice for them.

  • According to my sources, RLC was never a real target for Blues. It was more a fact of piecing two and two together and hoping we get four! The source surrounding the story is well respected

  • We will be lucky to sign anyone after the four crap games that zola has been mangers of. Get rid of zola and bring a manager in that knows the club well and then we will stand a chance. Simple. Bye bye zola. And thanks for making the team I love worse.

  • Agree Ian. Barmy decisions pre Xmas has ruined our season.Only winners are Villa,Fulham,Reading,Derby etc.. Never has a club shot itself in the foot more than ours and the paying fans will,imo,protest by dwindling gates.
