There has been some January interest in Birmingham City defender Kristian Pedersen, as per a report from Birmingham Live.
The left-back, who has also been operating as part of a back three this season, has been an integral member of Birmingham’s starting XI this season, playing 18 times in the league for the Blues, with all of them coming from the very start.
The report did not specify any clubs who are in pursuit of the 27-year-old’s signature, meaning it remains unknown if the interest is within the division.
Quiz: Can you name which club Birmingham City signed these 28 midfielders from?
Pedersen joined the Blues from Union Berlin in June 2018, going on to play just shy of 150 games in his three and half years with the club.
The full-back is also a Denmark international, appearing for the very first time for his national team in October 2020.
Pedersen is an important player within the Birmingham camp, and whilst the Blues look to be engaging in some good business this month, the defender’s experience, evident ability and versatility would be a big loss should he depart.
The left back/left wing-back area is an area that a fair few Championship clubs could strengthen in during this month and could be casting an eye over the Birmingham man.
His four-year contract at St Andrew’s expires in the summer, meaning that this month is the last opportunity for the Blues to generate a fee.
Despite his importance, it would be no surprise to see the Blues parting company with Pedersen if no new deal can be struck.
