Monk may have had his hands tied in this window, but sorting the goalkeeper situation seems to be at the forefront of the Blues boss’ mind at the moment.

With Kuszczak and Stockdale surplus to requirements, only Camp and Trueman are left to take the reins. Camp has risen to the challenge, but a consistent keeper is what Blues need to minimise any unnecessary goals leaking in.

One stopper that has been linked to Blues is former Bulgarian International Nikolay Mihaylov, according to Bulgarian newspaper @www24chasa.

The 30-year-old is without a team at present after being made a free agent at the end of last season after leaving Cypriot Omonia.

He has since gained interest from a number of sides in the first tier of Bulgarian football, but no deal surfaced.

Mihaylov made a move to Liverpool back in 2007, with a view to make him a future Number 1. However, he couldn’t qualify for a British work permit as as a result he moved to FC Twente where he made 82 appearances for the Dutch club.

With vast experience all over Europe and being tipped to being one of the Premier League giant’s permanent keeper, this may well be the best stopper Monk has available to him in the current climate.

What do you think, should Blues move to bring Mihaylov in? Or do you think we can cope with Camp and Trueman as backup for the rest of the season?

  1. Time we were told why our keepers are being cold shouldered….. I know honestys not usual in football but Blues take the biscuit…. Anyone seen Ren the rodent?

  2. Can we actually afford to pay out more wages?
    We need a decent keeper but then we still need decent central midfielders and a decent striker, which we just can’t afford or buy under the current restrictions. Up s*** creek springs to mind!
