No emergency loan signings expected


Blues boss Gary Rowett has somewhat ruled out making anymore signings as the emergency loan window continues to be available to Football League managers.

The window closes on 24 March and is readily used by managers looking to complete business that couldn’t be done in January.

But Blues boss Gary Rowett has ruled out dipping into the market as he believes his options are strong enough already.

“I am happy with what I have got at the moment,” said Rowett.

“As a manager you always want to have more options and different types of players but I think we have made enough changes in the January window.

“Sometimes if you make too many changes you upset the balance of the team, you upset the camaraderie in the dressing room – which as we know is a big part of what we are about.

“We have got a group of players in there that are all ready to come and play when they are asked.

“They will all come and work for the team and will be unselfish when they need to be.”


Blues had already signed Diego Fabbrini, Will Buckley, James Vaughan, Ryan Shotton and Luke Maxwell (Who returned to Kidderminster Harriers on loan), and Rowett feels these players are enough to see Birmingham through until the end of the season.

We have got some different options where we can change things as we go along,” he added.

“I have said this before, but I don’t think at this moment in time there is a necessity to change what we are doing.

“As we go along that’s when there will be some games when we have to throw caution to the wind to see if we can win.

“That’s when you need the options and when we might have to make earlier changes and try a few different things.

“At the moment we have been resilient and showed that we have been ready to keep going for quite a few more games.”
