Live report: Birmingham city closing deal to sign championship highly rated defender

Fresh claims arise about Birmingham City’s probable move for Plymouth Argyle player.
According to Birmingham Live, Birmingham City are not interested in signing Plymouth Argyle centre-back Dan Scarr.
After a severely disastrous 2023/24 season, Birmingham City will have high expectations for the next season.
The Blues were relegated unexpectedly and are now tasked with returning to the Championship immediately. Following the announcement that Tony Mowbray would not be staying, Chris Davies was appointed as the next boss after a thorough search.

The attention now shifts to bringing in new faces, and some players have already been linked.

Centre-back Dan Scarr, who is now on the books at Wayne Rooney’s Plymouth Argyle, has been linked with Birmingham City. However, new claims have emerged about those relationships.

According to Birmingham Live, Scarr is not one of the Blues’ current target players.

He would restore his spot under Neil Dewsnip’s temporary leadership, and his role might possibly be on the mind of new manager Rooney. Scarr is a strong presence in the back and a true leader, so he might be a valuable addition at Home Park again.

If that is not the case, it is possible that he will be able to move on before Plymouth loses him for nothing next year.

Are center-backs on the radar?
While Scarr is unlikely to be a target for Birmingham City, it is possible that they will be looking for fresh defensive alternatives this summer.

As loans and deals expire, they will only have Dion Sanderson as a senior center-back option. This creates a significant vacuum in Davies’ Blues squad, so anticipate a few to be targeted.

Someone with Scarr’s knowledge and background would be extremely valuable. As previously said, he won the League One title with Plymouth, which might make him prominent.

Nonetheless, it appears he is not on the radar. It will be interesting to watch who Davies lines up with, as the backline is sure to
