You know the logic that you shouldn’t quit a job until you have something new lined up?
Well, it looks like Blues might be getting rid of a goalkeeper without having any in the pipeline to take their place.
According to a report from journalist Pete O’Rourke Blues are set to let goalkeeper Connal Trueman leave the club on loan this summer, with AFC Wimbledon ‘on the verge’ of completing the deal. The 24-year-old has played a total of 12 games for the club so far but hasn’t put himself in too positive a light, conceding 25 goals in those appearances.
Which might seem like a logical proposal in order to get him some game time and hopefully develop him, with just one problem, we’d be left with zero goalkeepers who have any experience in the Championship. With Lee Camp out of contract, as things stand, if a daisy-cutter rolls towards the Tilton End in the first half of a game next season, there’s going to be nobody there to stop it going in. It’s something that Blues fans themselves have noticed and are slightly worried about.
Should the club let Trueman go out on loan?
Now whilst Blues have been in the hunt for a goalkeeper recently, with players like Seny Dieng being linked to the club in recent weeks, it’s probably best that we get a keeper signed up first before letting Trueman go out on loan.
We don’t want to be in a situation where a deal falls through after we’ve let Trueman go, find out we’re left with nothing and then have to scramble to find an alternative.
What about you? What do you make of this news about Trueman?
