I've heard this a few times and am just wondering whether there is any truth to it and, if there is, who this mystery player is.

"Birmingham City are in advanced talks with a centre midfielder and could reportedly be the shock signing of the season".

Any thoughts?

Joey Barton and Danny Guthrie have both been mentioned, don't know if either is true.

I would be slightly disappointed if this was the case based on how 'shocking' the transfer was said to be, however I too have heard these names. Barton is unlikely I would say though due to the social media statements made by him about Blues last season and the retaliation made by Blues fans.

Completely contradicting my previous statement, information has just emerged that Blues are in fact trying to sign Joey Barton on a free transfer however wages are being a stumbling block (Twitter Source).
He is a good player but with his temper and recent negative history with the Blues I am unsure whether this was the "shock signing" I was hoping for.

Don't see what he said as anti Blues, he stated that he thought we would be relegated last season. Without the change of management he would probably have been proven correct.

Forget them we need either fabbtrini or tesche and another striker

Don't get me wrong, he would be a fantastic signing with his experience and quality. However, I do wonder how some Blues fans would react due to his controversy.

It is probably unlikely that he will sign though due to his high wage demands and our insufficient wage bill.
