Blues boss Gary Rowett has branded this January’s transfer window as “exciting” as he looks to bring in some fresh faces after Christmas.
Despite a slightly shaky run which has seen Blues pick up only two points from five games, they still sit eighth in the table, which arguably is still exceeding expectations from the start of the season.
And with promotion still an outside possibility, Rowett is looking to freshen up the squad for when key players Clayton Donaldson and David Cotterill return.
“Without getting people overly-excited I think we’re in the best position we’ve been in for a while and I’m quite excited. I almost can’t wait for January to come,” Rowett said.
“I’m not trying to dismiss the next four of five games and say they don’t matter, because of course they do. But the point to me is that we’ll be in a very good position to strengthen and with the players coming back (Clayton and David), it’s quite an exciting time.”
And with the optimism surrounding future transfers, Rowett also believes there is reason for calm regarding his own contract situation- which he hopes to be resolved in the near future.
“I would suggest that we’ll be able to get something sorted quite quickly. But again the main focus is what we can do with the team rather than any sort of new contract for myself.
“That’s always been the main factor rather than sorting things out for me and some of the staff. We’ve spoken about it and we’re quite happy where we are. I’ve said it before, I fully expect to get our futures sorted out in that sense,” Rowett added.
