I think the question might be somewhat redundant.

His contract is up at the end of the season, but who knows, a few injuries to a couple of first-team players between now and the end of the campaign, a good run of form in their place and he could earn himself a new deal. Let’s look on the positive side shall we?

I’m talking of course about Blues defender Cheick Keita.

The 24-year-old defender first signed for us in the winter window of 2017 but has found getting a spot in the first-team incredibly hard to come by, making just eleven appearances for the club in that time.

Should Keita be given more playing time?





So when @Blues_HQ posed the question on social media whether or not we should let go of the Malian in the summer, you’d imagine that the answer would be a resounding ‘yes’ because he clearly hasn’t proven himself at a stage where it’s worth keeping him. And whilst there were some fans who felt that way, there were a few supporters of his who felt like his career at St Andrew’s wasn’t totally over just yet.

What about you? What do you think we should do with Keita this summer?
