Birmingham City have announced the signing of striker Chuks Aneke on a free transfer from Charlton Athletic.
Aneke, who scored 15 goals in 38 League One appearances for Charlton last season, was set to become a free agent when his contract with the Addicks expired at the end of this month.
Now though, the 27-year-old is set to return to the Championship with Birmingham, where he will reunite with his former Charlton boss Lee Bowyer.
The striker has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Blues, keeping him at St Andrew’s until the end of the 2022/23 season.
What was the score the last time Birmingham played these 25 teams?
Following confirmation of Aneke’s arrival, Birmingham have now completed three senior signings this summer, with midfielder Ryan Woods and winger Jordan Graham having already joined from Stoke and Gillingham respectively.
Taking to Twitter to react to news of that deal for Aneke, plenty of Birmingham fans were keen to give their thoughts on the club’s latest signing.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
3 really sensible signings, 30 goals added to the squad from last season all be it league 1 and a top championship midfield player. And I’m sure we’re not done yet, excitement is growing. Just need Halilovic to sign the contract, another Striker, a Centre Half and cover at FB

Get him fit! Proper match fit. Could turn out to be decent by Christmas if he survives early injuries. Good signing

Really excited too see what we have to offer now next season,Aneke to partner Hogan or Juke, Woods for the structure in midfield and Graham a goal machine in league 1 for the wing. If we manage to play the way we ended last season with the depth we’re going to have we look good🔥
