Akwasi Asante: Back with Birmingham after brief loan spell

Akwasi Asante: Back with Birmingham after brief loan spell

Asante impressed on his Shrews bow on Saturday, when they beat Swindon 2-0, after recovering from a hamstring injury sustained in pre-season.

The 20-year-old is needed at St Andrew's with Nikola Zigic out of action until at least the end of September's international break with a back injury.

Peter Lovenkrands is struggling with a niggle he suffered in training and Marlon King is still looking for a new club after being told he was free to leave, according to the club's official website.

Asante, whose only Blues appearance came in the Europa League against Nacional, could find himself in Lee Clark's squad for their next Sky Bet Championship clash, which comes on Saturday at Leicester City.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
