Bannan believes the club need fresh faces to bring out the best in the current players.
â€śThe squad here is really good and for whatever reason it didnâ€™t happen for us last season,â€ť he told the Birmingham Mail. â€śBut if new players come in itâ€™s good for the players who are here now because it keeps you on your toes and adds to the team and to the squad.
â€śIt means youâ€™ve got to fight for your place and I think that will be a big part of this season because if you get new faces in everyone tends to work harder to try to stay in the team. With a few new faces we could do well.â€ť
