It’s certainly a position that needs to be filled, it wouldn’t disrupt the first-team too much, and it wouldn’t cost us the earth to do.
So I guess it’s a win-win-win scenario on the face of it. According to a report from Alan Nixon at The Sun, Blues could potentially be in the market for Danny Fox after he was released by Wigan Athletic following their relegation.
Fox has played under Aitor Karanka before at Nottingham Forest, and at the age of 34, you’d think he’d be more useful as a rotational player rather than disrupting the established centre-back pairing of Harlee Dean and Marc Roberts.
How much will Blues spend in this window?
More than £15m
£15m or less
It was news that left Birmingham City fans with rather mixed emotions on the matter, with some of them feeling rather excited at the idea, whilst others seemed to find own individual flaws with the proposal.

We do need alot of players, we also need quite a few squad players too so there could be something in it

Really? Can't see this personally. We've been recruiting youngers with sell on value recently a 34 year old sick note isn't the right signing.

Everyone seems to forget the last time we were promoted we had Kevin Phillips, Lee Bowyer, Lee Carsley and Stephen Carr all part of our starting 11 and all 33 years old+. We need experience and if karanka thinks he can do a job then get him in. Remember, it worked before. #bcfc
