It’s a position that I’ve discussed before on this site, and now it’s time to address the situation once again.
And if I’m being honest I was taken a little bit by surprise that the club have gone down the route that they have, because given the fixture schedule, I felt like they’d need all the help and ‘strength in depth’ that they could get.
Instead though, Blues have decided to send left-back Steve Seddon on loan to AFC Wimbledon for the remainder of the season.

Having made a few appearances for us last season, he spent the latter half of it on loan at Portsmouth where he put in a number of good performances for the south coast outfit. He said last season whilst at Fratton Park that he wanted to find a ‘permanent home’ for himself, but it appears as though he’s going to have to wait a little bit longer in order to find that now.
Does Seddon deserve a chance with us next season?
When you add into the equation the decision to loan out Ryan Burke on top of it, and that at the moment is going to be putting a lot of faith on Kristian Pedersen to hold down that position for the whole of the season, because our options are now incredibly limited when it comes to backup options for him.
Add to that the fixture congestion where he might need a little bit of a rest and the problem more or less doubles. I just hope that the club have got someone lined up to take that role on.
What about you? What do you make of this news regarding Seddon?
