Birmingham City are set to complete their first signing of the summer transfer window after Union Berlin full-back Kristian Pedersen verbally agreed to join the club after he visited the stadium on Monday, Vital Birmingham can reveal.
The 23-year-old, who posted a picture on his Instagram page of him at an airport, was rumoured to have been spotted at the club earlier this week after photos were leaked online. Although they were blurry, many fans assumed it was the left-back and Vital Birmingham have learned that it was indeed the left-sided player.
Despite nothing being officially signed off just yet, we believe that a deal is close to completion and that manager Garry Monk will have his first confirmed signing as Blues manager sooner rather than later.
Blues fans, are you happy that the club are making early moves in the transfer window? Let us know in the comment section down below!
