Birmingham City manager Garry Monk has made Norwich City’s Ben Marshall a target for a loan move to St Andrew’s during the January window, according to a report in the Sun on Sunday (January 6, page 63).
With Monk subject to transfer restrictions at the Blues, it is important that all incoming and outgoing moves are carefully considered during this window as he is limited with what he can do.
So would Marshall be a good addition at Birmingham?
Absolutely, but Garry Monk must be careful.
It’s my understanding he can sign one player and one player only.
His hands are very tied and he has to decide if Marshall offers the right cover for the club’s needs.
It’s a tough situation, a bit like playing a computer game on the hardest setting.
I’d say so.
He’s barely played for Norwich but he’s got plenty to offer at this level.
He’d be a good option for the Blues as they try to get themselves into the top six.
He’d be a perfect signing.
Marshall earned such a positive reputation last season through his industrious displays for Millwall.
That is a style that has not suited Norwich City but it is one that would fit the Blues down to the ground.
