Birmingham City remain in takeover talks, but Laurence Bassini’s deal looks to be in doubt.
The ex-Watford chairman has missed a number of deadlines now, casting doubt over the stability of his takeover bid.
But in the midst of the uncertainty, Lee Bowyer has been replace as manager, with John Eustace the man in charge ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
And he’s spoken to the club about how Birmingham City is a ‘great fit’ for him whilst also revealing that he’s had other Championship offers in the past.
Eustace told bcfc.com:
“I have been offered two or three really good roles as Head Coach in the Championship over the last couple of seasons and I was enjoying working for two fantastic managers, then my time at QPR eventually came to an end. This Job came up and it is a great fit for me.”
And already it looks like Eustace could have some new signings in his sights.
One player being linked with a summer move to St Andrew’s is Angers full-back Souleyman Doumbia and another is Naby Sarr.
Sarr is now officially a free agent after seeing his Huddersfield Town contract expire, with Football Insider recently revealing that Blues are battling Reading for the potential free signing.
Blues paid more than £6million for Sunjic in 2019 but the 25-year-old has endured a mixed time at St Andrew’s.
With the new seasons just a few weeks away, Birmingham City have plenty of work to do in the transfer market but with a new manager in place, things are slowly moving in the right direction.
Once Bassini’s takeover deal either goes through or falls through, then Blues might be able to start making some more serious movements in the transfer market.
