Confirmed: Birmingham announce transfer agreement for 23-year-old

Published

Birmingham City have completed the signing of Kristian Pedersen who has joined the club for an undisclosed fee from Bundesliga II side Union Berlin.

The 23-year old left-back will be a welcome addition for Garry Monk, with Blues very short in that area of the pitch.

Jonathan Grounds is the only senior left-back at the club but he suffered a serious injury that prevented him from playing.

That saw Maxime Colin fill in at times and meant Monk was sure to move for a left-back in the window. And, they confirmed the arrival of Pedersen this afternoon with the Danish player signing a four-year contract at St. Andrew’s.

Pedersen is an attacking full-back who has also spent time as a winger as a youngster. However, at Union Berlin he has predominantly played in defence and has impressed.

Such form for the German side saw him rewarded with a call-up to the Denmark U21 side and he has played five times for his national team at that level.

The Verdict

This is an exciting signing for Blues and it solves a real problem position for the team.

Pedersen is a young player but has played a lot of games at a decent level and could develop into a very good Championship left-back.

Supporters will hope this is the first of many this summer as Monk looks to build a squad that can compete at the other end of the table after battling relegation last season.
