It looks like there could be a decision to make for the Blues in the summer.

And judging by the way fans have spoken about the players who fill that role in the past, someone is going to be left bitterly disappointed.

Portsmouth take on Arsenal tonight in the 5th Round of the F.A Cup, and whilst that doesn’t sound like it would have much of an effect on Birmingham City, other than who their potential opponents might be if they beat Leicester on Wednesday night, there is one player who Blues fans should keep an eye on.

Steve Seddon has been on loan at Portsmouth since the start of January, but speaking to The Portsmouth News ahead of the game, the 22-year-old left-back talked about what his future holds when the season is over and he returns to St Andrew’s:

“For me, it’s about playing football and that’s what I enjoy doing. So that’s what I’ll continue to do and play to the best of my ability. I do want a permanent home, but I’m limited to saying things at the moment. We’ll have to see where I am in Birmingham’s eyes in the summer. At the end of the day, I am contracted to them. But, definitely, we will have to see where I’m at from their point of view.”

Will Seddon be a regular for us next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Which puts the club in a bit of a sticky situation, because whilst he has received lots of praise from Blues fans this season, he’s going to have to go a long way to replace another fan favourite, as well as one of the club’s best performers this year per WhoScored in Kristian Pedersen. Indeed it seems the only way that Seddon would replace Pedersen is if a club like Watford came in with another bid for him and the Birmingham City hierarchy accepted it.

So if the club sell Pedersen and keep Seddon, fans won’t be happy. If they sell Seddon and keep Pedersen, they won’t be happy. And if they keep both, only one of them is going to play regularly, so the other one won’t be happy

Whichever way you look at it; someone is going to be left unhappy. I just wonder who it is going to be.

    Seddon is a far better all round player than Pedersen, not really given a decent run to show how much better he is, I personally would not be too disappointed if Pedersen goes in he Summer
