Birmingham City midfielder Reece Brown may be sent out on loan before the end of the transfer window. Several League One and League Two clubs are expressing an interest in Blues` talented 20-year-old.

Brown has struggled to force his way into the first team on a regular basis and now has five midfielders (Craig Gardner, Stephen Gleeson, Maikel Kieftenbeld, Robert Tesche and David Davis) seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order.

Former manager Gary Rowett publicly questioned Brown`s attitude last season after suspending him from club duties. To his credit, Brown worked hard and was rewarded with a place in the first team squad.

He has been in and around the first team this season under Rowett and Gianfranco Zola, but is yet to establish himself as anything close to a regular. It is thought that, with clubs sniffing around, Blues manager Zola may be tempted to find him a new, albeit temporary, home.

Elsewhere, Blues have today rejected an approach from Grimsby Town to take Luke Maxwell on loan.

  • my god theres some dead wood we should get rid of first grounds maghoma caddis stewart ledgzins cotterill Gleeson all either too slow or not up to it anymore …. we need r/b ..l/b…c/c 2 forwards and a fast winger…. oh and by the way joe harts up for sale lol kro

  • He needs this challenge , to be good at football you have to be passionate about it , if Reece has in is mind any thoughts of not getting game time that his skills deserve a loan period is the ideal solution …if offered go for it reecey boy show what you’ve got….

  • I think it would do him the world of good to go out on loan & get some regular game time. It would be a real chance for him to show what he’s capable of.

  • Jon agree with what you’re saying in part. Maghoma though? He’s a massive part of the team still. And Gleeson. The others I wouldn’t be surprised to see go.

  • I think Brown’s contract at Blues is up this summer. If he goes on loan then forget seeing him again in a blues shirt.
