Blues’ head of recruitment Ewan Chester will be the man tasked with bringing new players in this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

Mirror writer James Nursey also claims that the club’s owners, Trillion Trophy Asia, have growing doubts about Gianfranco Zola’s suitability as the manager of Birmingham City.

Nursey wrote- ‘Birmingham are preparing a summer spree – but Gianfranco Zola is unlikely to be the boss spending the cash. The Italians dire reigns hit a new low in the 1-1 draw at relegated Rotherham on Friday when some of his players fought with each other on the pitch’.

He continued- ‘Defeat by Burton today would pile the pressure on Zola and director Panos Pavlakis, who appointed him. Chinese owners Trillion Trophy Asia will pump more money into St. Andrews to push for promotion next term if they stay up’.

‘Mirror Sport understands their recruitment chief Ewan Chester is planning ambitious summer signings. But despite Zola being backed publicly only last week, there are growing doubts over his suitability as boss’.

  • It depends who you listen to on the subject of Zola, other sources at the club are insistant that he WILL be in charge next season. Me I think he’s lost the dressing room especially after friday. Players don’t seem to be doing as they’re told and there’s obvious unrest among them. I think we could spend £100million in the summer & not be any better. This diamond formation Zola favours just isn’t working, there’s just no end product & for these last 4 games we just need to go back to basics & grind out results
