Nicolai Brock-Madsen will return to Birmingham City this summer, but is unlikely to have a role to play under Garry Monk in the coming year.
A report in the Birmingham Mail has been discussing the Blues’ forgotten man, who will return to St Andrew’s on June 30th, having spent the last six months on-loan in Poland with Cracovia.
The 25-year-old’s spell in the Polish league has been underwhelming, with Brock-Madsen making just 11 appearances and returning one goal for his temporary employers, although he is highly thought of a Cracovia, who are keen on a permanent move.
Monk will welcome Brock-Madsen back in July, but the striker is unlikely to have a role to play in the coming year, with his contract at Birmingham expiring in the summer of 2019.
Brock-Madsen’s spell in the Second City has been poor, after Birmingham paid a reported £500k to sign the striker in 2015.
The striker has made just eight appearances across all competitions for the Blues, failing to score a goal for the Sky Bet Championship outfit.
Brock-Madsen’s spell with Birmingham has been a disaster, and it is very little surprise that Monk isn’t willing to offer the striker another opportunity.
The striker didn’t set the world alight in Poland, but obviously did enough to impress senior figures at Cracovia.
With it seeming likely that the 25-year-old has no Birmingham future, it makes sense that Birmingham look to move him on this summer, rather than keeping him on board for the final year of his contract.
