Blues are expected to miss out on the signing of promising Forest Green Rovers right-wing-back Kane Wilson as he is poised for a move to Bristol City.
Dubbed as the ‘next Cafu’, Wilson is currently undergoing a medical at The Robins, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

It was understood Blues were keeping tabs on the highly-rated defender as Lee Bowyer has a huge job on his hands to bolster the left-hand side following the departure of Kristian Pedersen and Jeremie Bela.
The 22-year-old has had an astonishing campaign for Rovers and was named League Two Player of The Season.
The former West Brom man played a big part in getting Forest Green into the third tier for the first time in their history.
Blues must now look elsewhere to find recruits, however, it’s gone very quiet and it’s likely no business will be done until the latter stages of the window.
