The agent of Birmingham City midfielder Sebastian Larsson has said his client will leave St Andrews at the end of the season when his contract expires, and is just not interested in staying at Birmingham.
Sebastian Larsson – on his way in the summer – to Newcastle?
That’s hardly surprising of course, as his agent Per Jonsson has criticized the Birmingham club for changing their minds about three times during January on whether they were going to allow the Swedish International to leave.
Both Jonsson and Larsson have hardly been impressed with the lack of professionalism shown by Birmingham City, and it’s no surprise he will be leaving as a free agent.
Per Jonsson talked about is client’s future plans, with Fotbollskanalen.se today and he was asked if Sebastien was interested in staying on at Birmingham:
“It’s not interesting at all. Of course I see difficulties in him staying at Birmingham.” “It doesn’t bother Sebastian. We are not in negotiations.”
“The new owners have no feelings for Sebastian and they need to realize that there has been a problem there.”
“They might have seen that, but they haven’t found a way around it.”
Larsson has been heavily linked with a free transfer to Newcastle, and indeed in late January, when Birmingham changed their minds – again – and told Seb he couldn’t leave – Jonsson said they were in negotiations with the Newcastle club.
Larsson joined Birmingham in 2007, on a four year deal, and has played over 180 times for the club with 16 goals.
He started his career at Arsenal and has 29 caps with one goal for Sweden.
In a recent poll we had on whether Newcastle should sign Larsson these were the results:
So it seems a majority of Newcastle fans would be happy enough to see Larsson at Newcastle in the summer.
