Birmingham City have entered the race to sign Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Oliver Norwood, according to journalist Tom Heslop on Twitter.
27-year old Norwood has been linked with a move to Hull City, but it now appears that Garry Monk has identified the former Manchester United trainee as a player he would like at St Andrews.
Norwood has played a key role in two promotion campaigns in the last two seasons, helping parent club Brighton to the Premier League in 2016/17, then repeating the feat whilst on loan with play-off winners Fulham.
Heslop suggests the price for Norwood could be in the region of £1.5m, which could still be too rich for the Blues. They’re currently under a transfer embargo, a significant hurdle that will need to be negotiated before they can take Norwood to the Midlands.
The 5ft 11in midfield has played 53 times for Northern Ireland and appeared 41 times in all competitions for Fulham last season, scoring five times in the process.
Oliver Norwood is proven in the Championship, he’s got international experience, including Euro 2016 appearances, and for £1.5m he would represent a bargain buy for any Championship club.
Birmingham will be keen to get the other issues put to one side so they stand a chance of bagging the former Reading player permanently.
