Blues striker Akwasi Asante has been recalled from his loan spell with Shrewsbury Town.

Having recovered from a hamstring injury sustained during pre-season, the 20-year-old made his first appearance of the season in Shrews' 2-0 victory at home to Swindon Town.

However the Dutch-born Ghanaian will now return to his parent club to hand Blues boss Lee Clark a fresh attacking option ahead of this weekend's trip to Leicester City.

Nikola Zigic is currently ruled out of action with a back injury until after next month's international break while Peter Lovenkrands has picked up a slight niggle in training. Meanwhile Marlon King continues to explore options elsewhere having been informed that he was free to talk to other clubs at the end of last season due to the club's financial predicament.
