Defender Deal Lined Up

Last updated : 30 January 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues boss Steve Bruce has confirmed that he is hoping to seal the signing of the Czech Republic Under 21 international left-back from Slavia Prague on loan until the end of the season, with a view to making the deal permanent after that.

"There is a possibility that Latka could be joining us.

"He comes highly recommended and he is young which is always a big bonus.

"It's not done and dusted yet, but we are hoping he is going to appear over the weekend and that we can get something done.

"I would like to bring in two or three players in an ideal world but, as I've said before, we are not loaded with millions and millions of pounds and have to cut our cloth accordingly."
