Garry Monk has recalled Greg Stewart from his loan spell at Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock.
After eight goals in 16 appearances for the Rugby Park outfit, The Express have reported that the Championship club have triggered a clause in the temporary deal to terminate it and bring the striker back to St. Andrews.
Stewart is out of contract at Birmingham in the summer and is a target for League One side Sunderland, according to The Express, too.
Kilmarnock are third placed in the SPL and are only one point of Celtic and Rangers above them.
The Scotsman will finish up training with Killy this week and return to the Midlands on Monday.
With the Blues under a transfer embargo and only able to sign players on a wage of £10,000 a week or lower, options are scarce, and this could open up the door for Stewart to finally get his chance.
If this isn’t the case, then he could be sold instead of being let go for nothing when the season ends.
This move will go one of two ways, either he will get his chance, finally, at Birmingham, or he will be sold to raise some money for either another player coming in or just to fil the bank up a little to ward off any future money issues.
It’s a shame for the player as he was doing well in Scotland and was one of the main reasons why Kilmarnock have been able to challenge the top two in the Scottish Premier League and maintain their title challenge.
There must be a method to Monk’s madness, and I would hope he has been recalled for a change in the side, rather than to recalled only to be sold at the earliest opportunity.
