Matija Sarkic explains Wolves loan exit as former Livingston goalkeeper joins Birmingham City

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.”
