According to reports Blues manager Lee Clark will not be looking for a replacement for the departed Leroy Lita, but will instead give the youth a chance to shine.

Lita went back to parent club Swansea after picking up a thigh injury earlier than anticipated and after netting three goals for the side in the short time he was at St Andrews, he will be missed.

It was thought that Clark would dabble in the loan market once again, but it turns out that the boss believes there is enough talent to see us through in the youth set-up.

Speaking to the < a href=>Birmingham Mail Clark said: ‘I want to give the kids a chance, I’ve been impressed more and more by the week with them.

‘I think there are going to be places for them, if they keep performing. I’m hoping that all these lads can follow the example of Marlon (King), who is scoring goals and playing very, very well.’
