Birmingham City manager Garry Monk is reportedly set to make his first signing since joining the club with reports in Denmark suggesting that the club are close to signing 23-year-old left back Kristian Pedersen.
In the report, the Danish media believe that the youngster, who currently plays his football with German side Union Berlin, is currently valued at around £1.8 million but it is thought that Monk will go in with a lower offer for him.
The full-back, who can also play at left-wing, has made five appearances for the under-21s at national level, is also reportedly a target of fellow Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United but it now looks as though Monk has stolen the march on his former side by putting an offer in for him.
With it being revealed in the last 10 days or so that current left-back Jonathan Grounds is available to leave the club as he is one of the highest earners, a move for another full-back was always on the cards, despite how well last summers signing Maxime Colin has done in that position.
Blues fans, do you think Garry Monk should be looking to sign a left-back or do you think that Maxime Colin will continue to be his first choice next season? Let us know in the comment section down below!
