Birmingham City’s first choice goalkeeper Lee Camp is a surprise target for Salford City, as they look to move early in this summer’s transfer window. 

Camp, who’s contract expires at the end of the month, played in 40 games across all competitions for the Blues this season and was pivotal in their fight to avoid the drop to League One. 

Reports have emerged on Twitter from The Sun journalist Alan Nixon that League Two side Salford City are interested in the 35-year-old shot stopper’s services, with the Ammies going into the new season with no senior goalkeepers on the books. 

Graham Alexander’s side finished 11th in their first full campaign in the fourth tier of English football, and have already added Jason Lowe, Tom Clarke and former loanee Ashley Hunter to their ranks ahead of the 2020/2021 season. 

Salford are backed by Manchester United’s Class of ’92 legends David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and brothers Gary and Phil Neville. 

Camp, who turns 36 next month, has amassed 523 appearances at Championship level after coming through the ranks at Derby County, with 86 of those in the colours of Birmingham City after his move there in the summer of 2018. 

Blues themselves are short of first team choices for their number 1 next season, with David Stockdale departing the club, and Connal Trueman being utilised mostly as their cup keeper. 

The club have recently been linked with David Cornell, with the 29-year-old Welshman deciding against extending his contract with League Two play-off winners Northampton Town.
