Birmingham City striker Isaac Vassell could face a considerable period of time on the sidelines again after breaking down in training but the player’s season is not over according to Birmingham Live.
The 24-year-old Newquay-born frontman joined the Blues from Luton Town last summer and signed a four-year deal at St Andrews but all has not gone to plan for the player.
Vassell made 10 appearances for Birmingham City last season, scoring his first goal in the 1-0 home win against Sheffield Wednesday but a serious knee injury has since halted his progress with the striker having been sidelined for the past 10 months.
Birmingham City manager Garry Monk was hoping to field the player in the coming weeks but Vassell has picked up a hip injury which may sideline him again for some time.
Whilst Vassell’s latest setback could be significant, it is hoped that the player will return to the Birmingham City side before the end of the season.
After failing to make an impact with Plymouth Argyle, Vassell dropped into non-league with Truro City to launch his senior career. The player notched 28 goals for The White Tigers before signing for Luton Town following a successful trial.
Press reports indicated that Birmingham City paid over £1 million to sign Vassell from The Hatters after spending a little over 12 months at Kenilworth Road.
