After news emerged last week that Leeds tabled a bid for the stopper, this could be the final nail in the coffin.
Although Leeds have fallen behind Blues’ valuation, the ability to meet wage demands have also been understood to be a problem for the Yorkshire club.
However, we have been told from a reputable source that he’s been removed from the first team squad altogether.
We also understand Stockdale didn’t appear at yesterday’s pre-season testing at the newly named Trillion Trophy Training Centre.
It’s also worth noting the 32-year-old has took to Twitter to remove ‘BCFC’ from his bio and his display picture has also changed (below).
Take from that what you want, but it’s interesting he went as far as removing which team he plays for from his bio.
It seems Monk has a replacement lined up and Blues fans will be hoping a deal is struck before the new season starts in 43 days.
What do you think, will Stockdale be missed or was it inevitable? Let us know in the comment section below or tweet us @bcfcfollowers.
