Italian Adventure Awaits for Welsh Midfielder

Atalanta, the high-flying Serie A club, has successfully secured a deal to sign Jordan James, the 19-year-old talent from Birmingham City. Sources close to the negotiations reveal that the Italian outfit has had a £4.3million offer accepted, marking a significant development after previous bids were turned down.

Birmingham Relents After Initial Resistance

Birmingham City, who are currently without a manager, have been holding out for a better deal for their young star. The club initially rebuffed two bids of £3.4million, but the latest increased offer has been given the green light. James, who has been with St Andrew’s since the tender age of 12, is now set to embark on a new chapter in his career in Italy.

James’ Versatility and International Pedigree

The Welsh international has been versatile for Birmingham City, showcasing his skills in various midfield roles. With five goals in 24 appearances this season, James has proven his worth on the field. His talent has also been recognized on the international stage, having debuted for Wales in a European Championship qualifier against Croatia in March last year.

Rising From the Ranks

Since his first-team debut in November 2021 against Bristol City, James has become a regular fixture for Birmingham City, playing in all but two Championship games this season. His contributions have been under the watchful eyes of John Eustace and the recently departed Wayne Rooney.

Birmingham’s Struggle and Future Prospects

Despite James’ individual success, Birmingham City finds itself in a precarious position, languishing at 20th in the Championship table after a disappointing spell under Wayne Rooney. The team is looking to turn their fortunes around in their upcoming FA Cup match against Hull City.
