Nicolai Brock-Madsen is set to return to Birmingham City this summer after a loan spell in Poland, The Birmingham Mail reports.
Brock-Madsen has spent the last several months on loan at Cracovia in Poland, where he has scored once in 11 games – although only two of those games were starts.
Despite his indifferent spell on the continent, Cracovia manager Michael Probierz is a fan of the striker and wants to sign him on a permanent deal, especially after his main striker Krzysztof Piatek departed to join Genoa in Serie A.
The 25-year-old has been with Birmingham since 2015, signing a four-year deal after a fee was agreed with Danish club Randers.
In his three years with the Blues, Brock-Madsen has managed just eight games for the club and has never scored.
Cracovia and Birmingham have spoken about extending his stay with the Polish club but those negotiations have hit a brick wall, although the former Denmark under-23 international is not expected to be part of Garry Monk’s plans for next season.
Considering the 6ft 3in striker last played in December 2015, his future at St Andrew’s looks bleak but he still has one year left to run on his contract so he will return to the club for now.
Why Birmingham gave Brock-Madsen a four-year contract is beyond me.
They have struggled to ship him for the last few transfer windows and any permanent move to Cracovia should be welcomed.
For the sake of his career and to get him off the books, this is a move which works for all parties.
