Birmingham City manager Pep Clotet is chasing a deal for highly-rated Kidderminster Harriers midfielder Ed Williams, according to The Mirror.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder bagged 13 goals for the 6th tier side last season, 12 of which came in the league and has attracted interest from a host of other clubs, including the likes of fellow Championship side Swansea City and League One outfit Peterborough United.
Williams had previously attracted plenty of interest at fellow non-league outfit Gloucester City during the 2017/18 season where he finished the season as the club’s player of the year.
A move to the Championship could now be on the cards for the young midfielder and first-team football could be on the cards next season should the 23-year-old choose to join a thin squad at St. Andrew’s.
Blues manager Pep Clotet has struggled in the transfer market so far since taking over. Highly-rated defender Michael Morrison left the club last week after failing to agree a new contract, big-money signing Jota opted to swap St. Andrew’s for arch-rivals Aston Villa and last season’s top scorer and player of the season Che Adams completed a move to join Premier League Southampton.
Pep Clotet has spoken out on the situation surrounding his transfer targets in an interview with Birmingham Mail:
“What we are lacking is really what we lost, a little bit of creativity, a bit of goals with Che and that’s what we need to improve. We need players that are going to come here with hunger to keep the team progressing.”
