Given that we have a previous link with him, having been named in reports about a move to the Championship, it’s not out of the realms of possibility that we go in for him again this summer, seeing as our goalkeeping department is scheduled to look rather baron if Lee Camp’s contract isn’t extended, with Connal Trueman as the only ‘senior’ figure left.
But would it be worth bringing him in?
Should we chase after Foderingham?
In my mind, yes it would be.
First things first, as a free transfer it will make financial sense, especially when you consider the financial implications that the next few months will have on clubs up and down the country, even if the club is able to make some money on the transfer of Jude Bellingham, penny-pinching could be the way forward for the club.
Secondly, he’ll come with experience. Having played over 300 career games, he’s a good equidistant option between Trueman and Camp, in that he’s been around the block, but at the same time still has plenty of years ahead of him.
And third, his stats show him in a very good light as he has a save percentage of .706% which isn’t too far away from Camp’s record .725%, and well above Trueman’s effort of .556%, so again you are getting a combination of the two current Blues stoppers.
All in all, if the Blues were to go after him in the summer again, I wouldn’t be too disappointed. Are there better options out there? Of course there are, but when it comes to Birmingham and our potential situation, he could be just what we need.
What about you? Do you think we should go after Foderingham this summer?
