Birmingham City had one of their worst seasons in years last campaign as they narrowly avoided being relegated to League One.
This season, Garry Monk will be hoping to avoid any moments like that as he builds a squad that will be pushing up the table rather than falling down it.

There are those who should be guaranteed starters and those who should not be anywhere near the club.
But there are also those who can still have an impact at Birmingham City in the future and should just be loaned out for the campaign.
So who are they?
