The Transfer Tavern‘s EFL spy has suggested that Birmingham consider signing Cardiff centre-back Curtis Nelson.
Despite ending the last campaign with two heavy defeats, Blues boss Lee Bowyer has already made a huge impact during his short spell at St Andrew’s.
And having led Birmingham to Championship safety, Bowyer will now be hoping to strengthen in the transfer window in hope of improving on their 18th-place finish.
The Blues manager has already been a busy man this summer, adding nine players to his squad, but the majority of those have been in attacking areas following their serious struggles in front of goal in 2020-2021.
Birmingham scored just 37 times, although they suffered equally as much in a defensive sense, shipping 61 goals in the Championship.
With that in mind, the EFL insider exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that Nelson, who’s been a regular for the Bluebirds since moving from Oxford, could be a good addition for Bowyer’s squad:
“With Birmingham changing a lot of things behind the scenes you could see them surprise a few this season with Bowyer.
“Good centre-backs at Championship level cost very good money but with Birmingham being a big attraction, you can see you Premier League players looking to get game time there.
“However, Curtis Nelson from Cardiff is an experienced one, and could fit well.”
