Birmingham have rejected a £12m bid for striker Che Adams, as interest in the in-form Blues striker refuses to die down, according to the Daily Mail’s Laurie Whitwell.
The Midlands football correspondent also believed that the quoted fee of £12m included is including add-ons, with under £10m being guaranteed to have been paid by the Premier League side.
It will come as no surprise to see Adams attracting interest as he has been impressive for Birmingham and already has 15 goals to his name in the Championship so far this season.
He has formed a formidable strike partnership with Lucas Jutkiewicz and the pair have 25 goals between them in the Blues’ league campaign.
It has previously been reported by The Sunthat Fulham were interested in pursuing a deal for Adams on Deadline Day.
Whitwell also claims that another bid for Adams by Burnley seems unlikely before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Thursday evening.
Birmingham supporters will be hoping that this is the last they have heard of any interest in Adams, as he could play a starring role in their side going forward for the remainder of the season.
This is a brave move by Birmingham.
This is risky business as Adams could have had his head turned by Burnley’s interest in signing him today.
Birmingham will need to keep him grounded, in the hope that he can continue to score goals for them this season to help fire them up the Championship table.
