Birmingham City man hoping to be back from injury for next season

Birmingham City midfielder Alfie Chang has said his ‘goal’ is to return for the start of next season.

Birmingham City have been without the youngster since August.

Chang, 21, has been sidelined with a knee injury for the last six months.

He has provided this update on his condition, as per the official club website: “At the moment it is almost all gym work, building up that strength in my leg. I have come a long way recently, I wore a brace for five months and now I’m doing most of the same stuff as the other lads do in the gym.

“Hopefully I can get back out on the grass sooner rather than later and we’ll go from there. The goal is to get back ready for the start of next season.”

Getting Chang back for the next campaign would be a boost for Birmingham, regardless of what league they are in.

The Blues are currently fighting for survival in the Championship. They are 21st in the table and are outside the drop zone on goal difference.

Gary Rowett has returned to the Midlands outfit as they look to avoid relegation to League One with eight fixtures left to play.

Chang’s absence has been a blow for both him and Birmingham this term. He provides useful competition and depth to their midfield department.

He has been on the books at St Andrew’s for his whole career to date and has risen up through the academy ranks.

The Worcestershire-born man was a regular at various youth levels before he was handed his first-team debut back in 2021 in a Carabao Cup clash against Fulham.

Chang has since gone on to make 20 appearances for the Blues to date, 17 of which came last season.

Birmingham are back in action this Friday following the international break with an away trip to QPR which is a significant game at the bottom of the division. The Hoops are only a point above them.

They then face Preston North End at home on Easter Monday as they look to turn their fortunes around.
