Report: Birmingham City agree deal to sign formal premier league star

Birmingham City ‘nearing agreement’ with former Everton and Middlesbrough star
Birmingham City are allegedly close to negotiating contract terms with a popular forward who formerly played for Everton and Middlesbrough.
Lukas Jutkiewicz is, of course, the man, a Blues club legend who fans hope will remain at St Andrew’s @ Knighthead Park next season.

The 35-year-old’s contract expires on June 30, and he will be free to join another club if no new deal is reached. Fortunately for the Bluenoses, Jutkiewicz is reportedly close to signing on for another year to help his favorite side return to the Championship.

Birmingham Live reports. Since Chris Davies was chosen the new manager, conversations with Jutkiewicz have begun. According to reports, the club and player are “close to agreeing terms” on a deal that would keep ‘the Juke’ until at least June 2025.

Jutkiewicz hopes for a stronger season.
It’s believed that the drop to League One will enhance Jutkiewicz’s game time, as he only played 548 minutes in the Championship last season, scoring three goals. The striker’s presence in the dressing room is equally as important as it is on the field, although he understandably wants to play as often as possible.

Jutkiewicz, who joined Birmingham from Burnley in 2016, has scored 66 goals and created 27 assists in 330 games. He is frequently used as a target man owing to his aerial abilities and exceptional hold-up play. What began as a loan has evolved into a hugely successful £1 million trade.

Blues hoping for another contract offer.
Veteran goalkeeper John Ruddy is another veteran Blues player who has been offered a new deal. It remains to be seen what the former Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers player has in store for his future.
