Garry Monk has finally been able to strengthen his squad with the loan signings of both Omar Bogle and Connor Mahoney yesterday.
The Birmingham Mail are however reporting that a fourth summer signing could be imminent with a deal for Cardiff City goalkeeper Lee Camp.
It’s fair to say that fans on Twitter are not too happy about the 33-year-old moving to St Andrew’s:
Rather have Harry Potter ????

One fan thinks we should just put some faith in the manager:
We will just have to trust monk

Honestly, I’m hoping that we don’t see too much of him even if he does make the loan switch. As a number two, he would certainly give the squad some much-needed experience, but you will not find many supporters hailing the keeper’s abilities.
Fingers crossed that Connal Trueman can follow up his solid competitive debut performance with a few more over the coming weeks and months. Having to rely on Camp as an alternative certainly doesn’t fill me with confidence.
