Birmingham City have ‘agreed a fee’ for striker as transfer window heats up at St Andrew’s

Birmingham’s transfer ambitions are finally hotting up with just days remaining of the window.

Birmingham City have ‘agreed a fee’ for Salford City forward Brandon Thomas-Asante.

According to BBC Sport reporter Alex Howell, the Blues and the Ammies have been in discussions over a potential move and have now today reached agreement on a fee.


Thomas-Asante has already scored four goals and provided two assists in the opening six games of the League Two campaign and would provide a much needed spark to John Eustace’s foward line.

The 23-year-old is able to play through the middle as a centre-forward though has also been deployed as a right and left-winger during his time in Greater Manchester.

Salford remain keen to keep their star forward and turned down a bid just this week from League One side Barnsley for his services.

Thomas-Asante has a reported £300,000 release clause in his contract and whilst the Reds’ bid was said to be nowhere near that amount - it appears the Blues have offered an amount deemed acceptable by the Ammies.
