With the January transfer window looming, Blues boss Lee Clark has rated his chances of bringing in new players as ‘unlikely’. With the financial restraints at the club, it would be an achievement if the club held on to their top assets, let alone bring new faces in.
He said- “the transfer window? It doesn’t affect me. Certainly not in the coming in tray, that’s for certain”.
The 40 year-old has named eight teenagers in the squad for Saturday’s clash with Burnley at St. Andrews, which many believe is a sign of things to come.
Regarding transfers, Clark continued- “you have got a list of players from all walks. You know where your position is at this moment in time, but I have been in the game long enough to know things can change quickly, so you’ve got to be ready”.
Jack Butland, the 19 year-old goalkeeper is being eyed-up by some top flight clubs including Liverpool, Everton and Spurs, but Clark has said that he’s received no enquiries. “I haven’t had a call about any of my players going. I don’t want to lose a player of Jack’s quality and we have to try our hardest to keep him and then see what happens”.
