Birmingham City news: Lee Bowyer offers candid transfer admission

Birmingham City will look to continue their promising start to the 2021/22 campaign by securing a positive result in their clash with AFC Bournemouth tomorrow at St Andrew’s.

After securing a resounding victory over Sheffield United in the opening weekend of the season, the Blues backed up this particular performance by reserving their place in the Carabao Cup second round with a 1-0 victory over Colchester United.

While Birmingham failed to seal the three points in their clash with Stoke City last Saturday, they managed to show a glimpse of what they are capable of producing in the goalless draw.

With the Blues set to face a Bournemouth side that have yet to taste league defeat this season, it could prove to be an exciting affair on Wednesday.

After guiding his squad to safety earlier this year, Birmingham manager Lee Bowyer has decided to make some changes to his squad during the current transfer window.

In addition to parting ways with a host of players, the 44-year-old managed to sign eight signings this summer.

Referring to his transfer company, Bowyer has now admitted that he is still looking to bolster his options by recruiting new faces by the end of the month.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail ahead of the club’s clash with Bournemouth over their plans, Bowyer said: “Our squad are good but I think we need a few more.

“If we could fit a few more, that would be good.

“It’s a long, tough season and no one knows better than me a few years ago (during his time at Charlton Athletic), if you hurt a few, what that can do to you in this league.

“So if we can bring a few more, I’ll be happy.”

When did the Queens Park Rangers sign Adel Taarabt on a permanent contract?

While Bowyer has already managed to shake things up for Tahith Chong, Chuks Aneke and Jordan Graham this summer, it’s no surprise he’s still looking to add to his squad.

With the Championship being one of the most competitive leagues in Europe, teams that have a plethora of options to choose from tend to be successful at this level.

Whereas Birmingham has recently been linked with Scott Dann and Lyle Taylor, it will be intriguing to see if these two players end up sealing a move to St Andrew’s.

Provided Bowyer is able to nail his recruiting by the end of the window, chances are his team can continue in level two later this year.
