The future of Blues goalkeeper Andres Prieto has emerged and it’s bad news for the 27-year-old.

Lee Bowyer has made it clear the former Espanyol stopper will not be in his plans:

Preito was very much a Karanka signing and a backup to Neil Etheridge.

Making only one appearance in the side last season, coming at the Etihad against Man City, the Spaniard has no doubt been very professional since joining up at St Andrews.

We’d like to wish him the best for the future.
