German side Bochum want us to release Robert Tesche from his contract at the club so they can sign him on a permanent basis.

The 31-year-old has spent a year on loan at the Bundesliga 2 outfit but he has 12 months left to run on his contract at St Andrews.

The German side’s sporting director Sebastian Schindzielorz says they cannot afford to pay a transfer fee for the midfielder, and it’s up to Tesche to come to an agreement with the Blues. He was quoted by as saying:

“It is up to the player and Birmingham. We are still not in the position to pay for detachment.”

During his time back in Germany, the central midfield player has played in 18 games, scoring one goal. He was not a regular for Bochum in the first half of the season, but he had established himself in the first-team by the end of the campaign.

After having first joined us on an initial two-month loan spell in 2014/15 season, Tesche finally signed on a permanent basis for free in the summer of 2016. He played 26 games in the 2016/17 campaign before being loaned out by Harry Redknapp.

  • If we can come to an agreement with him that allows him to leave and joined the Other Club for nothing and it costs us nothing I see no problem with that we don’t need him and he needs to move on what we don’t want to be doing is paying off the remainder of his contract and then having nothing to show for it we don’t need the expense. In that case we should transfer listed for a fee that at least covers until the end of his contract.

  • There lies a problem. We paid him a signing on fee as he was a free transfer, plus a 3 or 4 year contract. I think we paid part of his wages last season which indicates Bochum cant afford his wages plus any extras, so my thinking is we may have to pay to release him as a free agent for them to sign on less money because we have subsidised the deal.
    I don’t think he is a bad player but obviously he wasn’t getting in the team and when he did he looked rusty and off the pace. We have other p[layers we could let go for fees and keep him as a squad player but more motivated under Monk. If he wants him of course lol
