Confirmed: Birmingham City reach agreement with 33-year-old

Published

Birmingham City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Lee Camp, with the 33-year-old joining on a two-year deal as a free transfer from Cardiff City.

The stopper had struggled for game time at the Welsh side and was loaned out to Sunderland in January.

However, he was poor at the Black Cats and could do little to halt their awful form that ultimately saw them suffer a second successive relegation.

Yet, Garry Monk has been on the lookout for a new keeper after trying to move on David Stockdale and Tomasz Kuszczak in this window.

The former Leeds boss told the pair they were no longer needed and opted for youngster Connal Trueman in the Championship opener against Norwich City on Saturday.

But, the arrival of Camp should push the youngster down the pecking order, with the former Nottingham Forest man available for the weekend clash against Middlesbrough.

He has been handed the No.1 shirt at St. Andrew’s for the remainder of the season too.

The Verdict

This is not the most inspiring signing for Blues, as Camp was really poor at Sunderland last season and has struggled at this level recently.

However, he is an experienced player and could be a steady influence at the back if he rediscovers his best form.

Now, it’s all down to Camp to prove he can still cut it and justify the faith that Monk has shown in him by signing him up for two years.
