Koby is a Ghanaian midfielder who signed on loan with the Robins in July 2014 on a youth deal seeing him through until January.

Koby can play both wide and through the middle and he is a product of the Birmingham City academy. He was playing for Southern League club Woodford United before being snapped up by the Blues. 

His progress in the club's football and education development programme was impressive and he was soon recruited into the club's main development system. Appearances for the club's U18 and reserve teams further strengthened his promising development and he has even featured in a match versus Cheltenham Town in the FA Youth Cup here at Whaddon Road in 2013-14 where he played a role behind the strikers. 

Koby signed two-year professional contract in April 2013 - the same day that he made his professional debut as a substitute versus Wolves. He was named as the Academy player of the year for 2012-13 and made two appearances for Birmingham last season before enjoying a loan spell with Lincoln City.
