Birmingham City have had an inconsistent start to the season, with Aitor Karaka’s side currently 17th in the Championship.
In truth, that was to be expected. The new boss had a very busy summer as he reshaped the squad and it was always going to take time for the new recruits to settle.
Moving forward, it feels as though Karanka will need a few more transfer windows to get things right and whilst new signings are inevitable, departures will also follow as he looks to clear spaces in the squad.
With that in mind, we look at TWO current players who could be on the lookout for a switch from St. Andrew’s in the New Year…
The 29-year-old has failed to make a positive impression under Karanka and he has only made the matchday squad on one occasion this season, which speaks volumes.
So, he will surely feel that he needs to secure a move away to get regular football.
Davis’ contract with Blues expires at the end of the season, meaning he won’t command a big fee in January, so there doesn’t seem to be any obstacles to sealing a transfer.
Birmingham City quiz: Can you name the club’s top goalscorer from the last 13 seasons?
This won’t be a popular one as a section of the fan base feel that the attacking midfielder has a lot to offer and you can understand why as Blues are not creating enough chances.
However, Crowley doesn’t seem to be in Karanka’s thinking and he has regularly not made the 18 for Championship fixtures.
If he doesn’t trust or rate the former Arsenal man, a move would make sense and free up space for a more attacking option to come in, whilst the player will also want to leave for minutes elsewhere.
