Birmingham City

Birmingham’s 18/19 play-off hopes could hinge on these summer deals being struck



Birmingham City were still at risk of relegation going into the final day of the season but they managed to beat high-flying Fulham 3-1 at St Andrew’s to confirm their place in next year’s Championship season.

Garry Monk came in and was tasked with keeping them in the second tier following poor spells from Harry Redknapp and Steve Cotterill.

And having now completed what he was brought in to do, the former Swansea City, Leeds United and Middlesbrough manager will have his sights firmly set on a play-off push.

Such are the fine margins in the Championship that one year could be a relegation battle and the next a promotion-winning campaign.

The Blues are hoping for just that and Monk will be scouring the market for new additions to bring in this summer and improve their squad so that a play-off finish can be achieved.

Here are three players who would aid their play-off bid.
