Well, he didn’t last long, and he didn’t make that much of an impression when he was here.
Any way you look at it, that would qualify him as a ‘bust’ of a transfer, although it does appear as though we’ve made a little bit of profit on him. Quite how we managed to pull that off though is baffling.
It was confirmed yesterday that Spanish forward Alvaro Gimenez had left St Andrew’s, joining Cadiz CF on a three-year deal, having initially left on loan in the January transfer window. Gimenez had initially signed for the club last summer after the club activated a reported €1.5m release clause from Almeria.
Are you happy Blues offloaded Gimenez?
Indeed, surprise seemed to be the emotion of the day as Blues fans seemed amazed at the idea of us managing to make something on the deal.
Blues have sold him for just under £2.5m. Good business that. https://t.co/ywerxdpKVZ

You kidding?, part of Dongs failed cheapo Spanish project, nice bloke who tried his best but just not good enough for the championship – like most of the squad, owners, manager and so called coaching staff – all second rate who need to be gone

Great to see Blues make profit, I think he could of improved further and toughened up but clearly not settled. Best of luck to him.

So underwhelming. A really poor signing, lucky to turn a profit on him
