We’re coming towards the end of the transfer window now and it seems as though it could end on a sour note for Birmingham City.
The Blues harbour play-off hopes this season and have looked threatening at times this year with Che Adams and Lukas Jutkiewicz often linking up well.
The former half of the duo, though, could well be off before too long with David Anderson revealing that he is happy with offers from both Burnley and Southampton:
Burnley scrapping it out with Southampton for Birmingham striker Che Adams. Both prepared to double Adams’ wages to around £35,000-a-week. Adams happy with both offers and is waiting to see which club can agree a deal with Birmingham.

Clearly, it would seem as though things are now a case of when and not if the striker leaves St. Andrew’s and it is now down to the Midlands club to try and get the best deal for themselves.
This will be a blow, especially how late in the window it appears to be coming.
However, the Blues will feel as though the offer – the one they accept – will be too good to turn down, especially with things tight there financially.
It will be a loss, then, but sometimes these things need to happen and Garry Monk will remain confident that the players that stay at the club can still mount a top-six challenge this year.
