After lots of speculation concerning the centre back position at Blues, it looks like they have finally found there man. Jake Clarke-Salter is a young and promising center back who looks to be joining Blues (on loan) in the coming days.
As Pep Clotet is looking to play a formation involving 3 center backs, it was a position Blues had to strengthen this summer to persue with his ideas.
After spending time with Chris Coleman at Sunderland in January 2018, it did not look like Salter could adapt to the Championship style. However, last season Salter enjoyed a excellent loan spell out in Holland which earnt himself a place in the England U21 squad for the European Championships. As well as this, he also grabbed the attention of a few Championship clubs.
If Blues get this deal over the line it would mean that we would have a ball playing center back, exactly what we have been craving over pre-season.
