Birmingham City

3 names that need to be on Birmingham’s radar to solve problem position in January

Birmingham City fell to back-to-back defeats with an Aleksandar Mitrovic strike on Saturday sealing all three points for Fulham at St. Andrew’s.

Whilst Blues could have complaints about the goal because the Serbian pushed Marc Roberts, the reality is that it was a mistake from Lee Camp that presented the target man with a simple task of tapping home.

And, unfortunately for Camp, it’s not the first blunder he has made this season, with one other notable error coming at Wigan last month.

Therefore, many fans feel bringing in a new number one has to be a priority in the winter window and they think that could potentially transform the team.

Here we look at THREE keepers they should be targeting…

Joe Hart

This is a long shot for many reasons but it’s worth Blues trying for a loan deal.

The former England keeper will surely want to get back playing regularly and he knows Birmingham well after having a very successful loan spell with the club earlier in his career.

Can Birmingham City make the top six?

Yes

Yes

No

No

John Ruddy

With Wolves out of the League Cup and Rui Patricio the number one for the Premier League and in Europe, Ruddy’s only game time this season will come in the FA Cup.

So, he is another who would surely welcome the chance to get regular football elsewhere.

With his contract expiring in the summer, he would be available for a cut-price in the New Year and has proven himself at this level in the past.

Adam Davies

When Stoke City signed Davies in the summer it was considered a real coup as he had shone with Barnsley in the past.

However, his time in Staffordshire has been a nightmare, with the stopper third choice behind Jack Butland and Adam Federici.

Even at this stage he must surely be considering his options and if Pep Clotet can get Davies playing like he did for the Tykes then he would be a serious upgrade on Camp.
