Cardiff City goalkeeper Lee Camp is in talks to join Birmingham City on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Birmingham boss Garry Monk is desperate to bolster his goalkeeping options before the close of the transfer window and has lined up a loan deal for veteran keeper Camp.

 

David Stockdale and Tomasz Kuszczak have been frozen out of the first-team picture at St Andrew's with youngster Conal Trueman making his debut in last weekend's Championship opener with Norwich City.

Monk wants to bring in an experienced goalkeeper to add to his goalkeeping options and it appears Camp is his man.

The 33-year-old boasts a wealth of experience from spells at Derby, Queens Park Rangers, Nottingham Forest Bournemouth and Rotherham.

The former Northern Ireland international joined Cardiff last summer from Rotherham to link up with Neil Warnock again, but he has yet to play for the Bluebirds.

Camp spent last season on loan at Sunderland, making 12 appearances for the Black Cats, but he could not prevent them from suffering relegation to Leaugue One.

Cardiff are happy to loan out Camp again as he is well down the pecking order at the Cardiff City Stadium and Birmingham have moved to bring him to St Andrew's.
