Birmingham have agreed a deal to bring young Arsenal duo Fabrice Muamba and Sebastian Larsson to St Andrews on season-long loans.
England youth international Muamba, 18, and Swede Larsson, 21, will give Steve Bruce added options in his midfield engine room this season, but the Blues boss has also said he is not finished in the transfer market yet.
He told the Birmingham Mail: 'You can't have a big enough squad and as things stand at the minute, we're a little bit thin.
'I'm still trying to bring in two or three players on top of the Arsenal lads. It's no secret we're after a striker.'
