Having just been released by Blackburn Rovers, Peter Whittingham finds himself without a club, and Birmingham City need players – so there is a match there already.
Having preciously played for Aston Villa, the winger would know the area well, and to a degree, the club, too.
At 33, his best years may be behind him, but talent never fades, and the midfielder would add something lacking to the Blues side, and he would be an extra option should Monk wish to move for the winger.
After his release from Norwich City, Wes Hoolahan could be a potential target for Garry Monk.
The former Ireland international would add grace, panache and creativity that the current Birmingham midfield lacks.
It should be a move that Monk should pursue in order to bolster his side who are light all over the pitch right now.
