‘Why is everyone so surprised?’ – Many Birmingham City fans react as club issue player confirmation

Published

Riley McGree’s loan spell at Birmingham City has come to an end with the midfielder returning to his parent club Charlotte FC ahead of the new MLS season.

McGree made 30 appearances for the Blues since arriving in October 2020.

It is not very common in England for a player to spend that amount of time continuously on loan at the same club, this has led to an attachment between the supporters and McGree that would usually not be established with a loan player.

The 23-year-old bagged the winner as Birmingham City beat Swansea City 2-1 in late October, one of three goals for the club, in a squad where there is not a lot of room for manoeuvre his energy in central areas will be sorely missed.

Lee Bowyer and his recruitment team would have been preparing for life after Riley McGree knowing that his loan ended at the end of the year, therefore the Blues will be expected to bring in some cover in midfield in the January transfer window.

Birmingham only face one team who are currently above 15th in the league in January, therefore despite the loss of McGree an opportunity to push themselves back towards the top half will present itself.
