Opinion: Why cheap might not necessarily mean cheerful when it comes to this Blues target

With one man leaving, it looks as if we’re one step closer to one man coming in.

Although they aren’t going to be filling the same role.

According to a report from BirminghamLive, further added to be @WeAreBirmingham, Birmingham City are taking a keen interest in Queen’s Park Rangers goalkeeper Seny Dieng, with the Blues reportedly having made contact with the West London side. The 25-year-old Senegalese stopper has been on loan at League One side Doncaster Rovers this season, conceding 32 goals in 32 games in all competitions whilst keeping 10 clean sheets along the way.

And it probably means that yesterday’s news about Lee Camp’s new deal really will only cover him until the end of the current, because now it’s really clear that we’re looking for his successor.

Should the club go after Seny Dieng?





With a value of just £225k on Transfermarkt, it would certainly be a move back to the days of cheap additions to the squad, as opposed to last year when we spent upwards of £9m on summer signings.

However, given that the club could be going through a few financial difficulties in the coming months if football is set to continue without fans for the foreseeable future, it could be more of a risk than the proposed fee would normally entail.

Even if we were to bring that fee down a little bit, given the situation the club are in now and things potentially getting worse considering how much matchday revenue means to us, it might still be a bit of a risk to bring him on board.

What about you? Do you think this we should chase after Dieng, or go with a cheaper option? Or go with someone already on our books?
