Something we need to steer well away from.
With the domestic transfer window getting ever closer to being finished, there’s still some time for clubs to make moves, and it looks as if Birmingham City are looking to do just that, but with a name that comes very much out of left field.
According to a report from TEAMtalk, Blues are just one of a number of Championship clubs that are looking to bring in 25-year-old Cameroonian midfielder Wato Kuate. The former Manchester City academy graduate is currently a free agent having left Finnish side RoPS, and is being trailed by the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers, with the latter currently reportedly in the lead.
Blues will sign ____ more players this window?
Which I think gives us a major advantage because I just think this would be a waste of a signing. If you take a look at Brian Dick’s recent article about team selection and personnel, I don’t see where he would fit in to the team, either within the starting eleven or even on the substitutes bench, which means you’d be paying (in wages at least) for a very expensive training ground extra.
On top of that, with Aitor Karanka stating recently that his philosophy is to get players with plenty of Championship and promotion experience, you can’t even make the argument that he would come in and be a good ‘presence in the changing room’.
So long story short, let QPR or one of the other clubs take him, because I just don’t see what he would add to our team.
What about you? Do you think that we should sign Kuate?
