Garry Monk is rumoured to be edging closer to completing his first signing as Birmingham City boss.
The Danish media claim that Blues have bid around £2 million for Union Berlin wing-back, Kristian Pedersen.
The 23-year-old has featured regularly for the second division German club, and stands at 6’2. He can play both left back and left wing.
Leeds United have been linked with the Dane for some time, but it seems Blues are the front runners.
Leaked images are currently doing the rounds on social media, with XuaDong Ren appearing to be standing with a player in the KOP.
The potential move may come as a shock to some given how early it is in the window, in addition to Blues historically leaving their business late in the market.
We will bring more updates as we get them.
