Birmingham City man unlikely to be offered new deal – Birmingham Mail reporter

When his contract expires this summer, Birmingham City striker Scott Hogan is expected to quit the team, according to a report by Alex Dicken of the Birmingham Mail.

Hogan joined Birmingham City in 2020 for an unknown fee from Aston Villa. During his tenure with the Blues, he has made over 150 appearances and scored 36 goals.

His time at St. Andrew’s is running out at age 31, since he will not be renewing his contract in the summer. Despite making seven appearances overall, the striker has only started two Championship games since October. On five separate times over this time, though, Hogan has also been completely absent from the matchday roster.

The forward will become a free agent in the summer and is unlikely to receive a new contract offer, according to Dicken of Birmingham Mail. He continues by saying that given the large number of players who are out of favour or on the fringes of the first squad and whose contracts expire in June later this year, he is probably not the only one.

A boost for Sheffield Wednesday?

Sheffield Wednesday, a team in the Championship, expressed interest in signing Hogan from Birmingham City in December. Though nothing materialised, the Owls may revisit this agreement during the summer transfer window considering that they are not going to have to pay a transfer fee.

Naturally, a lot could rely on the division in which Danny Rohl’s team plays football the next season. After being relegated, Hogan might not want to return to League One if Sheffield Wednesday makes a move.

The player may find this to be a more alluring offer if the Owls do stay in the second division since he would probably want to play at the best level he can. Even if his performance has declined, there will likely be a lot of attention because he is a free agent.
