Villalba could make Birmingham debut against Bristol City

Birmingham could face Bristol City with new midfielder Fran Villalba.

The former Spain Under-19 international joins the Blues from La Liga side Valencia.

The 21-year-old could be joined in the squad by 16-year-old forward Jude Bellingham, who became the youngest ever player to make a senior debut at the club after impressing in their Carabao Cup First round defeat to Portsmouth.

Birmingham may also look to give a debut to second Spanish signing Alvaro Gimenez, who joined Pep Clotet’s side from Spanish second-tier club Almeria.

Bristol City have strengthened midfield after the signing of 24-year-old Hungarian Adam Nagy, who left Italian Serie A side Bologna to join the Robins.

Nagy is joined in midfield by Frenchman Han-Noah Massengo, 18, who departed Ligue 1 side AS Monaco to join City on a four-year contract.

Newly-signed Portuguese right-back Pedro Pereira may also feature, having moved from Benfica to City on a season-long loan.

Striker Antoine Semenyo is free to return to action having served a three-match ban, whilst Saikou Janneh remains sidelined with a knee injury.
