Birmingham City have today rejected an offer that has been described as derisory for experienced left-back Jonathan Grounds, Vital Birmingham understands.

The defender, who made 30 appearances for the Blues last season under three separate managers, was placed on the transfer list by Garry Monk, along with three other high earners, David Stockdale, Tomasz Kuszczak and Craig Gardner, but none of them are yet to find another club.

We understand that the club have knocked a ‘nothing’ bid back from an unnamed club but they are open to further offers from that club and from any others who are interested in buying the 30-year-old former Middlesbrough trainee.

Since joining the club in July 2014, Grounds has gone on to play under eight separate interim and full time managers at Blues, making a total of 170 appearances across all competitions, scoring five goals in the process.

The news of the rejected offer comes just a week or so after it was revealed that the club are close to signing Union Berlin left-back Kristian Pedersen.

Blues fans, would you be disappointed to see Jonathan Grounds leave or do you think it’s the right time for him to move on? Let us know in the comment section down below!

  • Done a decent job but we need better and pederson is younger with more time to develop right move football goes on .

  • Nobody could question Johnathans commitment on the pitch but I doubt very much he will get any game time next season. We all wish him well and I can guarentee he will be a great signing for anybody who chooses to buy him. All the best Johnathan and thank you

  • Was the best player last season upto his injury…. Football goes on, wish him all the best, been told he’s a decent bloke away from football too

  • Done us proud last season.. but like other comments we need youth, someone who can grow into a true blue..K.R.O.

  • We haven’t even got a replacement for him .! But are trying to sell him … was one of our best players last year … not happy with this …

  • Good defender and he is definately under rated but if Monk wants a full back who bombs on Grounds won’t be his cup of tea.

    Better for him to get games somewhere then not playing at the Blues.
