Former Livingston goalkeeper Matija Sarkic says it was an ‘obvious decision’ to leave Wolves for English Championship club Birmingham City on a season-long loan.

The goalkeeper joined Wolves in 2020, six months on from a promising spell in the Scottish Premiership at Livingston. He has not been able to hold a senior spot at the Premier League club after moving to Molineux from Aston Villa and now moves to the Championship for experience.

Ex-Livingston man Sarkic has been on trial at Birmingham City from Wolves and says it was easy to decide on his next move: “I am delighted to be here and have settled in really well with the lads. I know a few of the boys already from previous clubs so I am really happy to be here and have settled in nicely.

“I got the shout that the Gaffer wanted to look at me and I said yes straight away because I back myself.  It was an obvious decision for me to come and show what I can do, and it has paid off.

“I think of myself as a goalkeeper as someone that has a lot of presence, I like to command players around me and my box. I also like to play with my feet and helping out players when they need it. I want to be a positive impact on the team.”
