‘Happy with this’ – Many Birmingham City fans react to latest confirmation of player agreement



A number of Birmingham City supporters have been reacting to the latest confirmation from the Blues that defender George Friend has signed a new contract extension with the club.

Friend was one of the many arrivals at St Andrews last summer, but unlike a lot of those other additions to the squad the experienced defender proved to be a valuable addition to the squad.

The 33-year-old managed to make 26 appearances in the Championship last term and showed his versatility with his ability to play as both a centre-back and a full-back. Friend helped the Blues record eight clean sheets and also won 1.4 tackles and 6.3 duels per match.

The defender’s deal was due to enter the final year next season, but the Blues have now confirmed on Friday morning that Friend has signed an extension to keep him with the club until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
