Birmingham join West Brom in race to sign John Terry

  Birmingham join West Brom in race to sign John Terry Birmingham City have joined fellow West Brom and Aston Villa in the race to sign Chelsea legend John Terry, according to a report in The Times. They are reporting that Harry Redknapp will look to persuade the defender to join him in the ‘Second City’ and that he has been encouraged on Terry’s willingness to drop down to the Championship. Birmingham, along with West Brom and Villa, will be in battle with a number of other Premier League sides and European clubs in the race for Terry’s signature. The defender was recently away on holiday relaxing and not contemplating his next move too much. He said: “I’m enjoying Portugal, spending time with the family and just switching off really from the summer and everything.” Terry, 36, only appeared 14 times all season for the champions, with ten coming in the Premier League, as he ended his 22-year association at Stamford Bridge.

Aston Villa are one of the clubs interested in signing Dutch striker Tom Boere from FC Oss, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.

The 24-year-old was in prolific goalscoring form in the Dutch second tier last season scoring 33 goals in 38 games and that record has apparently got the attention of a few clubs around Europe, including Villa.

FC Twente and Anderlecht are also interested in the forward and plenty of reports in Holland seem to think a switch to Twente is on the cards as the player would like to remain in him homeland.

Boere only signed for Oss last summer but as he only put pen to paper on a two-year contract, he’s already set to enter the final year of his deal and as such, his club might be forced to see him this summer rather than lose him for nothing in 12 months time.

Aston Villa demand more from Sevilla for Jordan Amavi .
Aston Villa have told Sevilla to double their offer for full-back Jordan Amavi after Villa rejected the first bid tabled by the La Liga side, according to MARCA.. Amavi looks increasingly likely to leave Villa Park this summer as the Championship side look to raise funds for new signings. Villa chairman Tony Xia bragged that the club rejected a £25million bid for Amavi in January, but the Financial Fair Play restrictions on the club now mean that they are willing to accept a much lower offer for the player. Sevilla made an opening bid of £5.3million for the defender’s services but Villa are wanting to recoup the £9million they paid Nice for the 23-year-old back in 2015. Amavi struggled for form at Villa last season as Steve Bruce’s side slumped to a 13th place finish in the Championship, with the Villa boss reportedly placing Amavi on the transfer list as a result of his inconsistency.
