Birmingham City

90.7% pass success rate: Should this man be on Garry Monk’s radar?



Birmingham City avoided relegation to League One on the final day of the season, beating play-off final hopefuls Fulham 3-1 at St Andrew’s, while Nottingham Forest ended their season with a 3-2 loss to Bolton Wanderers.

Both sides have endured a tenuous campaign and will be looking to dive into the transfer market this summer to rejuvenate their squads.

The 35-year-old midfielder David Vaughan was released by the Reds after five years at the City Ground, and with Birmingham struggling for quality and consistency in the middle, could the Wales international be the cure to the problems?

As you can see, we’re looking at back across the entire season, in which David Vaughan has featured 14 times for the Tricky Trees.

Ending the campaign with a pass success rate of 90.7, his accuracy with the ball cannot be questioned. But, is he the signing that can change things around at St Andrew’s for Garry Monk and his men?

With just one assist to his name this season and an average of 1.1 dribbles per game, Vaughan might not be the player he used to be.

While Birmingham aren’t likely to be title contenders this season, is Vaughan an upgrade to the likes to Dutch midfielder Maikel Kieftenbeld and Englishman David Davis? Whether they will make a move for the former Blackpool and Sunderland man is still to be seen, but it might not whet the appetite of the Birmingham City faithful, as much as they’d like.
