“A talented, talented player” – Carlton Palmer delivers opinion on Birmingham’s interest in Fulham man

Birmingham City will be hoping to exit the most recent transfer window in stronger shape than they started it, with a large chunk of summer left to go. 

The ongoing uncertainty around a takeover of the club could impact transfer plans as the near season edges closer to getting underway.

One player that the Midlands club have been linked with is Alfie Mawson, as per a report from Birmingham Live, with the Fulham defender set to depart the London club upon the expiry of his current deal.

Assessing whether or not it would be a good move from the Blues, Carlton Palmer told FLW: “Yeah, if he’s injury free, he’s a talented, talented player.

“I think he needs to play, he needs to play games, he needs to get out and get back, but he’s got to stay injury free.

Quiz: Can you name which club these 27 ex-Birmingham City players are playing for now?

Cameron Jerome?

“It happens to players, it’s unfortunate, it’s part of the game you know, it’s sad when it does happen but it does happen, and if you’re a confidence player like he is, then you need that run of games to get that confidence going.” 

The verdict 

Mawson certainly has the ability that is required to help Birmingham enjoy a better season next time out, with his injury record being the only slight issue.

Possessing excellent levels of physicality and defensive know-how, he is also progressive defender who has the composure and passing range to be trusted on the ball.

Unable to see too much game time with the Cottagers over the last couple of seasons, Birmingham could be an excellent destination for Mawson to rediscover form.

A lot could change at Birmingham over the next few weeks, however, that should not hinder any attempt to secure a deal for Mawson.
