Birmingham City have completed the signing of Matija Sarkic on a season-long loan from Wolves.

It’s no secret that Blues need a new keeper, with number one Neil Etheridge suffering from Covid. And, Sarkic has been on Blues’ radar for a while now, with the stopper joining on trial initially.

That has given Lee Bowyer the chance to assess the keeper on a day-to-day basis and in training, and he has clearly been impressed, with the deal announced on the club’s official site this evening.

This is the second loan to arrive from Wolves after Dion Sanderson signed and here we look at the reaction from Twitter…
