Another goalkeeper is being targeted by Blues, this time it’s Burnley’s Bailey Peacock-Farrell, according to reputable journalist Alan Nixon.
The Northern Irish international started his career at Leeds United, featuring for them 40 times in four years.
Blues will have to fend off competition from Sheffield Wednesday if they are to gain his services between the sticks.
Although only registering 4 appearances for Burnley since signing for them back in 2019 because of Nick Pope’s cemented starting place, the 24-year-old has represented his country of Northern Ireland 21 times.
This news comes after Andres Prieto departs the club and with Etheridge contracting COVID-19 ahead of pre season fixtures.
This leaves Zach Jeacock, who is likely to head out on loan following the news of his contract extension, and Connal Trueman who’s days in a Blues shirt are limited.
What do you think Blues fans, would this he be a good number 2 at Blues?
