The transfer window is now closed and Blues have only sold one senior player as Jack Butland signs a four-and-a-half year deal at Stoke City. As part of the deal, he will remain at Blues on loan until the end of the season.
Bournemouth striker Wes Thomas completed his loan move to the club, adding much needed competition up front.
So, where was this fire sale of players that was bandied about by the national media? If this deadline day has taught us anything, its to take everything printed or quoted by national media, including Sky Sports, with a pinch of salt.
In the last few days, Blues have rejected bids for Marlon King, Chris Burke and Curtis Davies. It has to be said, it could have been a lot worse.
