Birmingham City’s best new starting XI after transfers - including £4m defensive trio - gallery

Here’s how Birmingham City could line up following their squad overhaul from the 2023/24 summer transfer window.

Birmingham City supporters have enjoyed an exciting couple of months with the takeover now completed and nine new signings already through the door.

Kevin Long, Tyler Roberts, Koji Miyoshi, Krystian Bielik, Ethan Laird, Siriki Dembele, Keshi Anderson, Dion Sanderson and Lee Buchanan have joined so far.

The squad is looking a lot healthier than it was a couple of months ago when loan deals expired and contracts were run down by a whole host of players.

There have been departures, though, with Tahith Chong leaving for Luton Town a painful one, consoling only due to the £5 million plus £5 million add-ons paid.

Meanwhile, exciting youngster Jobe Bellingham, the brother of Jude, left Sunderland at the start of the summer in a £2 million switch.

It’s only the start of August and the season is yet to get underway, so even more transfers could yet be completed – whether that be signings or sales.

But how are things looking as things stand, with the roughly £5 million spent on deals? Will there still be spots for those who were already at the club?
