These Blues fans have been reacting to some incredibly exciting news that came out of the club yesterday.
“Children are our future” as The Simpsons so eloquently put it back in the day.
And that’s precisely the message that Birmingham City are taking on with their latest venture as they announced proposals of new contracts for some of our ‘rising stars’ in the academy at Wast Hills.
Nico Gordon and Kyle Hurst have both been offered three-year deals at the club, Josh Andrews and Adan George have both received two-year offers, whilst Tate Campbell has been offered a one-year deal. All contracts do have the option of being extended by the club in the near future. Now it’s just up to the youngster’s to hopefully accept the deals put in front of them.
Will any of these players be regular first-team players in 2020/21?
And this is news that was greatly received by the Birmingham City fans on social media, and with good reason. Blues first-team boss Pep Clotet has spoken before about how he trusts the academy coaches and likes the young players coming through, so it’s not too farfetched to think that these names might become a lot more prominent in the near future like Jude Bellingham did before them.
I’d like to see Jukes take Josh Andrews under his wing and hopefully we have Juke replacement there. Adan could be a star so we need to give him a chance in pre season. Chuffed with all these signings!
