Deaman and Asante Go Out On Loan

5pm today saw the end of the loan and free transfer window for this season. Deadline day saw two players leave Blues on temporary deals whilst none have come in.

Twenty-year-old striker Akwasi Asante has gone to League One side Shrewsbury Town until the end of the season. The Dutchman has just returned from injury and has gone straight into the Shrews squad to face Carlisle United at Brunton Park tomorrow. Asante spent a month on loan at Northampton Town last season where he scored one goal in four league appearances. The striker has one appearance for Blues, in a two minute cameo against CD Nacional in 2011 in the Europa League.

Meanwhile 19-year-old defender Jack Deaman has gone to League Two side Cheltenham Town where Jack Butland spent some time last season. Deaman has been a regular in the u21 side and can play at centre half or right back. He goes into contention for tomorrow’s game between Port Vale and the Robins, which would be his professional debut if he gets onto the pitch. Deaman is with Cheltenham until the end of the season.

However, despite reported interest in a couple of Spurs youth players, Blues have taken no one else in loan to add to the six they already have (Butland, Caddis, Morrison, Thomas, Ferguson and Lee). Blues have however confirmed the release of 18-year-old midfielder Fisayo Adarabioyo by mutual consent a year into his 2 year deal.
