It’s been a pretty quiet summer so far for the Blues.

I suppose when you’ve had the financial difficulties that they’ve had in the past, it’s probably best to keep your wallet closed. However that could be about to change, depending on who you believe, as the Blues could be about to sign Chelsea youngster Jake Clarke-Salter.

Clarke-Salter was on the verge of signing for Birmingham back in 2017, when Harry Redknapp was in charge, however circumstances elsewhere meant that they were forced to abandon the plan. Seemingly out of nowhere though, rumours have started to circulate online that Clarke-Salter is set to finally make the move to St Andrew’s two years later.

The majority of these reports stem from one story claiming that Clarke-Salter was at Birmingham’s recent friendly away at Bristol Rovers, something that has been claimed by supporters from both teams.

Although there was a more concrete version of events, and that came from Matt Law at The Daily Telegraph, who said that they were in ‘pole position’ to sign him.

With this ‘news’ now out in the public, fans were abuzz on Tuesday with news that the deal was seemingly nearing completion. This could just be a case of a false alarm, but that didn’t stop these Blues fans taking to Twitter to air their views on the latest developments. Developments being used in the loosest possible sense.
