Blues have made their first signing of the summer transfer window in the form of former Aston Villa and West Brom trainee Finley Thorndike.

The youngster made 22 appearances in Villa’s Premier League 2 campaign and will join up with Steve Spooners U23 side.
After a year at Bodymoor Heath after joining as a free agent following his impressive trial, he came on trial to Blues towards the end of last season and has been handed a two-year contract, plus a year’s option.
The 20-year-old will be hoping to hit the ground running and be considered for first-team action in the future.
He spoke to Blues TV since signing the dotted line:
“I am very excited. I think it is time to properly kick on in my career and get started properly.
“I am a midfield player, more creative on the ball, score goals, create goals and try and put on a bit of a show as well.
“I have always been a Blues fan, ever since I was little – my dad is a Blues fan.”
As things stand Blues are yet to sign any senior players as the takeover saga rumbles on…
