Blues have announced Dortmund defender Emmanuel Mbende is on trial, playing today against Colchester United.

The Blues U21 are playing the Colchester United development team and trialist Mbende is in the starting 11.

The 19-year-old has been predicted for big things from the Dortmund faithful. His normal position is centre back but can also operate at defensive midfield.

The 6’5 youngster has recently been on trial at Derby and also at a couple of clubs in Holland. The ‘future star’ would be ideal for Blues as Rowett is looking for personnel in the position he plays.


Amongst the starting XI today against Colchester are Mitch Hancox, Reece Brown (pictured) and Charlee Adams, who returns to action after recovering from an injury he picked up during Blues’ pre-season trip to Spain. 

What do you think, would an inexperienced defender be good cover at the back for Blues?
