There are some things about Birmingham City you can take as absolutely nailed on to happen – because it’s Birmingham City. Face a team which has just been humbled by a non-league side in the FA Cup a few days ago? You can guarantee they’ll be on their game for when Blues come to town. Come out of the transfer window with only five senior defenders in the squad? You better believe you’ll lose more than half of them in less than two weeks.
Birmingham City announced on Sunday that both of the Spanish players that they had taken on tour with the club to Portugal have been signed. Both Agustin “Agus” Medina and Ivan Guzman have signed two year deals with the club, but 28 year old Guzman will be immediately loaned out to UE Cornella for the season.
When the party for Birmingham City’s pre-season tour to Austria was announced, it was also confirmed that the 24th man of the party was an unnamed trialist. As of Wednesday night the trialist has still not been named with the only word coming from Harry Redknapp being that the player isn’t technically a trialist at all.
