Confirmed: Birmingham City announce player departure



Birmingham City have confirmed that midfielder Luke Maxwell has left the club to join National League side Solihull Moors.

The 21-year-old had been on loan at Tim Flowers outfit for the first half of the campaign and Blues confirmed on their website that the deal has now been made permanent.

Maxwell has been a regular for The Moors, playing in 30 games and scoring three goals and he will hope to carry on playing an important role for the team as they push for promotion to the Football League.

The youngster arrived at St. Andrew’s back in 2016 from Kidderminster Harriers but struggled to make an impact at the club, featuring only for the U23s and not making an first-team appearance.

As well as that, he had loan spells with his former club at Aggborough, Grimsby and Gateshead over the past few seasons.

The midfield man was out of contract with Blues in the summer and it seemed unlikely that he was going to be offered a new deal.

The Verdict

This seems like a very good move for the player as he wasn’t going to get a chance in the first-team for Blues.

At his age, he needs to be playing regularly and he is now linking up with a side he knows well and playing in a team that allows him to flourish.

Now, Maxwell will want to help Solihull Moors to a play-off finish at least as they look win promotion.
