Here is your Birmingham City transfer round-up for Thursday, January 13, 2022.

Bidwell Latest

Sources in South Wales expect Jake Bidwell to leave Liberty Stadium in this transfer window.

The 28-year-old is set to be out of contract in the summer and – with Bidwell currently out of favor with Russell Martin, Swann has had difficulties negotiating the new terms.

Our partners at WellsOnline It is written: “With talks over an extension set to be a stumbling block for Bidwell in recent weeks, the club is open to allowing the defender to move into the winter window, rather than allowing him some time after the 2021 finale. Don’t risk losing too. / 22 Seasons.

“Preston North End have also kept an eye on Bidwell’s position, while Middlesbrough was eager to swoop in for the Swansea man last year.”

BirminghamLive has been told that the Blues have increased their interest, but nothing is imminent in terms of a definitive signing.

There’s a domino situation here in which Swansea potentially need a replacement source – and a similar situation with the Blues with their own left-winger Kristian Pedersen, who is also a free agent in the summer.

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly entered the race for Manchester United winger Amad Diallo.

The Blues, Derby and Barnsley are all interested in the 19-year-old, whom United are eager to send out on loan to get game-time.

Italian side Sassuolo has been credited with interest in the form of Dutch team Feyenoord.

It is believed the Red Devils are hoping to loan him to a team at domestic level as they look to use him for English football following their move to Atalanta in January 2021.

Sky Sports in Germany reports that Dortmund, who have made a name for themselves in developing young talent from English clubs, are keen to make a move for Amad.

The Blues have taken Tahit Chong and Teden Mengi on loan from United so far this season.

Bristol City are keen to take the former Chelsea trainee’s salary off their books, but there has been a ‘high amount’ of interest in the 24-year-old, as Bristol Live reports.

Claimed to be interested in QPR, this was later reduced, while Blues, Huddersfield, Reading and others have all been added.

write bristollive: “He would prefer a clean break. This has precluded any previous plans for a loan deal, which would allow his value to rise and then hopefully make the summer sale redundant.

“City has received several loan offers for Palmer, but they have been rejected outright because salary contributions have been substandard. Likewise, players’ offers in return have not gone down well with Robins.”

Sam Cosgrove

Salford City have emerged as the favorites to secure the services of Birmingham City striker Sam Cosgrove.

it is according to daily Record, Joe claims the 25-year-old is ready to leave Division One and join a League Two side Gary Boyers to end his spell with Shrewsbury Town.

Record Sport has previously claimed that Dundee had failed in an ambitious loan bid for the former Aberdeen forward.

They say that Dundee boss James McPeak had agreed a deal with the Blues but Cosgrove had decided he wanted to stay in England.

Salford, currently 11th on the table, have enjoyed some renaissance in recent months and are still hoping to enter the play-offs.
