Negotiations continue between Birmingham and Atalanta for the transfer of midfield starlet Jordan James, according to reports from Milan News 24. The 17-year-old has impressed with his performances in Birmingham, leading Atalanta to make a strong bid for him.
Jordan James has been highly influential for Birmingham, demonstrating himself as a player of both quantity and quality. The young English midfielder is even said to be admired by Congerton, who encourages Atalanta to close in on him.
James himself seems eager to make a move to Bergamo, with an agreement reportedly in place with Atalanta. However, there’s currently an impasse in the proceedings. Birmingham is holding out for a fee of €10 million for their prized midfield, whilst Atalanta is sticking to their €6 million plus bonuses offer.
