AFC Bournemouth winger Connor Mahoney is open to staying at Birmingham City again next season.

The 22-year-old has spent this season on loan with the Blues and has enjoyed his time at St Andrews.

Mahoney, who is a former England Under-20 international, has played 32 games in all competitions for Garry Monk’s side in this campaign and has chipped in with two goals.

He has opened up about his future and has said, as per a report by Birmingham Live: “I will meet with the gaffer (Eddie Howe) down in Bournemouth, just have a little chat about the season, what he thinks I need to work on and how well I have done.”

“I have got a few years left there but I will reiterate to the gaffer I need to be playing week in week out. I think this season I have proved to a lot of people that I should be in a good environment and playing football each week. That’s something me and him will look at and go from there.”

Mahoney added: “If the gaffer (Monk) did want me back here and it was right for my parent club, they want me to go on loan again and get a good season in – and they were interested, I wouldn’t think twice about coming back for another season.”
