Young Striker Joins Blues On Loan

Birmingham have signed striker Chris Wood from West Brom on a month-long loan, with a view to an extension.

The 19-year-old striker goes straight into Blues' squad for Saturday's opening game at Pride Park because of injuries to Cameron Jerome, Nikola Zigic and Marlon King.

The duration of Wood's initial stay at St Andrew's means he will also be available for the subsequent league matches against Coventry, Middlesbrough and Watford, as well as the club's two-legged Europa League play-off tie against Portuguese side Nacional.

Will he start in a 4-4-2 or will it be a 4-3-2-1 with Wood on the bench?

This probably means CJ and NZ are probably staying. We can't really buy anyone until we sell a striker.

I hope this doesn't mean Asante gets overlooked while we help develop other teams youngsters and we are merely bulking up on numbers. It could also mean that injuries to other are worse than expected and they won't be available for some time.
