Having only just been given the role, it looks like Connal Trueman could be about to receive some competition.
And if this one man does come in, it gives you the impression that two more men in David Stockdale and Lee Camp, might want to start packing their bags and starting to looking for jobs elsewhere, given that their contracts both expire at the end of the season.
According to a report in The Scottish Sun, Birmingham are a number of clubs that are reportedly interested in bringing in Portsmouth goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray. The 26-year-old has been the South Coast side’s established number one so far this season, keeping six clean sheets and conceding 22 goals in 19 appearances.
As mentioned earlier, with Camp and Stockdale both on the way out, the goalkeeping hierarchy is going to need to be addressed at some point in the future, so they might as well get some things in progress now. However, with a reported value of £2.5m from Kenny Jackett’s men, I think this is someone that the Blues need to be steering clear from.
Now that Trueman has got himself in that role, he should be given the freedom to just get on with his job rather than worrying about getting into a competition with another player, let the competition come in after he’s been given a chance to get settled into the role. And even if something does happen, as I’ve been calling for for a while now, it would be worth us turning to Moha Ramos in the interim instead.
What area do Blues need the most investment this January?
And at a cost of £2.5m that money would be much better served looking at other areas of the squad, such as defensive cover just in case Marc Roberts’ injury turns out to be worse than first imagined.
