Arbroath striker Steven Doris, who was on trial at Wast Hills last week, may have earned himself a Blues deal, but not until the summer.
Lee Clark confirmed that he ‘liked the look’ of the 24 year-old, and may attempt to sign the part-timer at the seasons end, as reported in the Birmingham Mail.
Blues may potentially lose 23 players in June when contracts expire, short term deals end and loan players return to parent clubs, so the need to rebuild the squad is vital.
Meanwhile, Clark also confirmed there have been no bids for Jack Butland, despite several enquiries. Fulham, Southampton, Liverpool and Arsenal are said to be keen on the 19 year-old England goalkeeper, but so far, no concrete offers have been placed on the table.
Chris Burke was the subject of a rejected £300,000 bid from Nottingham Forest, run by ex-Blues boss Alex McLeish, last week, but the Scot is expected to return with a higher offer.
Jake Jervis looks set to complete his £40,000 move to Turkish top flight side Elazigspor in the next 24 hours.
