Do you think Birmingham can be a force next season?

Yes, with Bowyer we could be

The centre-back has also signed a new four-year deal before joining the Blues, which will see him remain at the club until 2025.

Many Birmingham fans reacted positively on Twitter to the news of their latest signing.

What have these Birmgiham fans had to say exactly?

Man I haven’t been this excited for a Blues season to start since…. We’re going to do well this year, I just know it #BCFC

This will be Sanderson’s second experience in the Championship after he spent a season on loan with Cardiff City during the 2019/20 season but he only managed to make 10 appearances.

An easy one to kick off our quiz on the 2020 summer in the EFL, which player left Birmingham City to join Borussia Dortmund?

Sanderson becomes Bowyer’s fifth summer signing overall and the club’s third loan deal from a Premier League club following the loan arrivals of Tahith Chong and Juan Familia-Castillo.
