Birmingham City face a massive make-or-break summer ahead.
After narrowly avoiding the drop on the final day of last season, it is time for the Blues to start flirting with relegation and move up the table towards the play-off zone.
With the core squad at Garry Monk’s disposal, all Birmingham need is more consistency and a few more players to add to the first-team to really kick on and compete at the other end of the table.
Monk will now be in charge of recruitment for the first time since taking over at St Andrew’s and there is some money to spend, especially if they can sell a few unwanted players like David Stockdale.
Here are three players that Monk needs to sort out moves for as soon as possible to strengthen his Birmingham squad before other clubs swoop for these targets.
