Birmingham accept bids for Norwich target Redmond

24 June 2013 20:59

Norwich City transfer target Nathan Redmond is on the verge of a Premier League move after Birmingham City accepted two bids for him.

Redmond, 19, made 42 appearances in all competitions for Birmingham last season, playing a key role in the club's survival in the Championship.

The winger has been capped by England at three different youth levels, and recently represented his country at the UEFA European Under-21 Championships.

Redmond is a man in demand and Birmingham manager Lee Clark revealed that "six to eight" top-flight clubs are chasing his services, with Birmingham already accepting two bids.

"The truth, me being transparent and not speaking out of line, is that there are six to eight Premier League clubs interested in Nathan," Clark said.

"Now what we have had are three bids, two that have been accepted and one that hasn't been accepted. And now it's up to Nathan if he wants to speak to those two clubs and see if it's right for him.

"What those other clubs have to do who haven't put bids in yet is get to the level where the other two are at. It's another one where you don't want to lose the player, but you understand the reasons why he has to go."

Everton and West Bromwich Albion are also rumoured to be interested in signing Redmond, and although Clark would love to keep him at the club, he is aware he will not be able to stand in the player's way given the precarious financial position of Birmingham City.

"I have spoken to Nathan at length. In an ideal world he would be with me this season – so would Curtis.

"But we know that isn't the scenario. We have to get the best deal to keep Birmingham City going.

"Listen, the bottom line is that the most important people in all of this are the fans. We have got to make sure the club is still there for them.

"And whatever you have got to do to make that happen, you have got to do it."
