That is why low-cost, low-risk transfers, i.e loans and freebies, remain Blues’ best bet. If there is a bit of money to spend, as was the case with Tahith Chong last summer, Eustace has three loanees in mind.
Dion Sanderson, Auston Trusty and Krystian Bielik made sizeable contributions on loan at St Andrew’s last season and Eustace would love to bring them back. All three will have other suitors, that is undeniable, and Blues will have to join the queue.
The trio occupy three prominent positions in Eustace’s preferred 3-5-2 formation. Sanderson and Trusty as quick, physically excellent outside centre-backs and Bielik as the destructive, ball-winning force between two box-to-box number eights.
I think if we are to pay £2m out of a restricted budget he would have to be classed by Neil as a first team starter?
Well based on the fact we only have Wilmot as a recognised central defender I'd say he'll be classed as a starter.
Yes my point being Neil must think he is good enough for that if he buys him. I just have no idea how good he is having never seen him play and just going off fan comments. So hopeful he is good enough if bought for a play off team push.
