Report: Birmingham city close to complete the signing of Wednesday star

Bolton Wanderers, Birmingham City, and Blackpool were released by Sheffield on Wednesday, along with the former Seasiders defender.

George Byers, a target for Blackpool, was released by Sheffield Wednesday and is now a free agent.
The midfield player, who spent the second half of the previous season on loan with the Seasiders, was anticipated to leave Hillsborough this summer.

The 27-year-old gained popularity while he was employed at Bloomfield Road as a result of several noteworthy displays he created in the park’s middle.

Numerous teams have taken notice of his performances, and the former Watford player is rumored to be linked to Bolton Wanderers, Oxford United, and Birmingham City.

Byers moved from Swansea City to Sheffield Wednesday in 2021, and while he was in South Yorkshire, he assisted the team in winning the Championship through the League One play-offs. He scored fourteen goals and provided sixteen assists in 78 games for the Owls.

The club’s retained list, which also includes former Blackpool defender Reece James, was made public, confirming his Hillsborough departure.


The 30-year-old originally signed a one-year contract to become a permanent member of Wednesday after joining on loan from the Seasiders in 2022.
