The 22-year-old centre-back has been out on loan at St Andrew’s for the season and is now starting to make a real solid impact in the team.

It was his 14th appearance of the campaign in the win over Bristol City and he was an extremely imposing figure at the back, as he won aerial battles and was calm in possession.

Clarke-Salter is a product to come out of the Chelsea academy and has played twice at senior level for the club.

But he’s had a number of loan spells away from Stamford Bridge in recent years to try help his development and it looks like he’s finding some form.

After spells with Bristol Rovers and Sunderland as a youngster, he enjoyed a successful stint in Holland with Vitesse Arnhem for the whole of last season.

It remains to be seen whether he’s got a chance of breaking into Frank Lampard’s first-team, but he’s represented England through the age groups up to the Under-21s and has great potential.

A selection of Birmingham supporters on social media have suggested they want to sign the Chelsea star on a permanent basis and are impressed by him.
