Birmingham City and West Brom face transfer disappointment despite ‘ambitious’ attempt




Birmingham City and West Brom are bracing for disappointment as their pursuit of Sheffield Wednesday’s forward, Josh Windass, appears to be falling short. Despite their determined efforts, both clubs are unlikely to secure the talented player, who seems to be leaning towards extending his stay at Hillsborough.

Reports suggest that Birmingham City recently launched a bold bid to bring Windass to St Andrews. The Star has indicated that the Blues have shown considerable interest in the attacker over the past few weeks. In addition to Birmingham City and West Brom, clubs from Major League Soccer (MLS) are also eyeing the forward, highlighting his widespread appeal.

However, Birmingham and West Brom’s aspirations might be dashed as Sheffield Wednesday is reportedly on the brink of finalizing a new contract with Windass. Currently, one of five players whose contracts are set to expire this summer, Windass has been in talks with the Owls regarding an extension. While negotiations are progressing, a few details remain to be ironed out before an agreement is reached.

Windass had a notable season, scoring seven goals in 28 appearances across all competitions, playing a crucial role in Sheffield Wednesday’s efforts to avoid relegation. His contributions in the final three games were pivotal in securing their survival, much to Birmingham’s detriment.

Adding Windass to their roster would have been a significant boost for Birmingham City as they prepare for the upcoming League One campaign. The forward, who is the son of Hull City legend Dean Windass, was instrumental in Sheffield Wednesday’s promotion via the League One play-offs in the 2022/23 season, where he notched up 11 goals and seven assists.

As the week progresses, both Birmingham City and West Brom will be watching closely to see if there’s any chance for their ambitious plans to materialize, but the likelihood remains that Windass will stay committed to his current club, Sheffield Wednesday.
