Mutch signs new Blues deal

Mutch was a success during a loan stint at Watford earlier this

season but returned to St Andrew’s and made his Premier League

debut against Manchester United last month. He accepts he may have

to leave on loan again before establishing himself in the Blues

squad, but the 19-year-old believes he can make a success of his

Birmingham career. Mutch told the club’s official website: “I’m

delighted to have signed. “It has taken a couple of months to sort

out but now I’m happy to have a new contract at Birmingham. “Now

I’ll just aim to keep on training hard, maybe look to go back out

on loan again and get a few more games until the end of season.

Then hopefully I’ll come back for pre-season and try and be in and

around the first team.” Mutch explained: “I think this is the right

place for me at the moment. “The team are doing well, we’ve got a

good manager and the board have invested in new players so I think

it’s the the right place for me. “Birmingham has become a home to

me. I’ve enjoyed every bit of my time at the club and I just want

to keep on improving. Hopefully the next three years will be a good

three years for me.”
