Birmingham City have turned down a second offer from Burnley for forward Che Adams, as they desperately try to keep hold of their top scorer during this window.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding individual campaign, weighing in with 15 goals in 29 games and impressing with his overall ability too.
That has prompted a lot of interest in the former Sheffield United man from top-flight clubs, with the Clarets particularly keen and Southampton are thought to be interested too.
And, Sky Sports Transfer Centre (12:24) revealed that Sean Dyche’s side have had a second bid turned down for Adams.
The Daily Mail have claimed that Blues are holding out for £15m for their prize asset and it remains to be seen whether that valuation will be met before the deadline.
However, Burnley are likely to have funds available, with striker Sam Vokes expected to leave the club for Stoke City today.
Despite the speculation surrounding his future, Adams didn’t let it impact him as he played, and scored, as Garry Monk’s men drew 3-3 with Swansea City on Tuesday.
Blues fans will be waiting very nervously until 11pm tonight as this one looks as though it could run and run.
Adams is a massive player for the team and it would be a significant blow if he did depart, especially as they’d struggle to replace him.
But every player has a valuation and £15m is a fair price for Adams in this market, so the club are right to hold out until it’s met.
