Exeter City defender Christian Ribeiro has been linked with a switch to Birmingham City.

The Welsh international played 36 games last year and can play either right-back or centre back.

At 25, Ribeiro is the right age to make a step up and will want another taste of Championship football, having not been given much of a sighter when he played there for Bristol City.

Ribeiro was highly rated as a youngster, but a serious injury slowed his development and stopped his potential move to Premier League Everton.

If he can recapture the form that made Premier League clubs interested, then Ribeiro could be a very clever signing from Blues.
