The Blues squad are back again for their second day of pre-season testing in the scorching temperature at the newly named Trillion Trophy Training center.
However, it appears left-back Johnathan Grounds is missing, along with David Stockdale who has been removed from the first team squad and been told he can leave the club.
Instead of preparing for the new season, the pair have been filling up their cupboards with clothes and having a coffee break instead (below).
This all but confirms Grounds is likely to depart Blues after the news of him being listed for transfer at the start of the window. The 30-year-old made 158 appearances and scored four goals during his four-year-stay at the club.
His replacement, Kristian Pedersen, signed a four year deal at Blues yesterday which was a relief for all Blues fans as they patiently waited for just under a month for any news on the Danishman.
It seems the club are balancing the incomings with who goes out, as Robert Tesche’s departure was announced shortly before Pedersen was pictured signing the dotted line.
Monk will be hoping to bring in a goalkeeper as soon as possible before pre-season training kicks off in Austria next month.
Blues fans, what are your thoughts, will you be sad to see Grounds go? Let us know in the comment section below!
