Dion Sanderson / Loan / Wolves
The central defender was a huge hit at St Andrew's when on loan for the first half of last season, helping to keep seven clean sheets in 16 appearances, and Blues will be excited to have him back. 4/5
Przemyslaw Placheta / Loan / Norwich
The Polish midfielder is a versatile talent that can play on both flanks but has yet to prove he can cut it in English football and is prone to injuries. 2/5
John Ruddy / Free / Wolves
The veteran goalkeeper still has plenty to offer on the pitch, producing some strong performances at Wolves last term, while his leadership and experience could prove invaluable to a young Blues' dressing room. 4/5
Auston Trusty / Loan / Arsenal
A centre-back who is yet to experience football in Europe but has garnered attention with his development in the MLS and, given time could eventually challenge for a spot in the starting line-up. 2/5
Krystian Bielik / Loan / Derby
Birmingham know the Polish centre-back from his previous loan stint at St Andrew's when he was a promising player but his career has stalled since then, missing a year with a serious knee injury, and he's yet to prove he's back to his best. 2/5
Undisclosed / Real Valladoid
Undisclosed / Sporting Gijon
Free / Cologne
Loan / Hertha Berlin
Free / Milwall
No Championship team leaked more penalties than Birmingham last year, who gave away nine, eight of which were converted.
Birmingham City haven’t finished higher than 17th in any of the last six seasons and their decision to replace Lee Bowyer with John Eustace less than a month before the season starts may not help them end that streak.
Troy Deeney’s return to his boyhood team hasn’t gone to plan so far with the striker netting four league goals last season. He’s now finished with fewer than ten league goals in four of the last five campaigns.
Birmingham shipped 75 goals last season. They have not conceded more since the 1988-89 campaign when they allowed 76 goals.
Birmingham have flirted with relegation for the last six years and may finally fall through the trapdoor this season. While a new owner is on the horizon, they may not arrive in time to provide the funds to fill the many holes in the squad and Blues will struggle to plug all the gaps via loans and free transfers.
