Newly appointed Birmingham City manager Garry Monk has ruled out the possibility of bringing any new faces to St Andrews in the coming weeks as the club look to avoid relegation to Sky Bet League One according to Birmingham Live.

The Blues are currently two points from safety with just 10 fixtures remaining while they have the disadvantage of  having played one more game than the two sides directly above them in the table.

After being handed the manager’s job at St Andrews on Sunday, Monk lost his first match in charge against former employers Middlesbrough at home in midweek. Despite that result being the Blues’ sixth consecutive league loss, it has been reported that Monk will not consider signing any free agents and will remain loyal to the squad which has already been made available to him in B9.

Birmingham City are currently the lowest scorers in the Sky Bet Championship with a dismal goal tally of just 23 in 36 matches. It would have been no surprise to see Monk move to sign a new striker but the 39-year-old will instead battle on to the end of the season with his current crop.

The Blues are no strangers to relegation trouble with the club having needed a 1-0 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate on the final day of last season to secure their Sky Bet Championship status for another 12 months,
