Birmingham City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed that Jesper Gronkjaer will be allowed to leave Birmingham City, the club’s manager, Steve Bruce, has confirmed.

The Danish international has proved a disappointment since arriving at St Andrews in the summer.

Several clubs from Spain have expressed an interest in signing Gronkjaer when the transfer window opens in January and Bruce has admitted for the first time, that he is prepared to let the winger go.

“We’ve received one [approach] in particular,” he told Sky Sports News. “We’ve received a couple of enquiries from Europe.

“One club has made an offer. It hasn’t been accepted yet but we’ll see what develops in the next couple of weeks.

“We’ve kept Jesper informed and told him about the whole thing. Sometimes it happens; a player fails to adapt to a certain club and style.

“It’s disappointing for us. If the price is right, it’ll be in the best interests, I think, for both parties that he moves on.

“It’s a shame but sometimes that happens in football.

“He’s a smashing lad. We were looking for an attacking player on both flanks and he would definitely have been one of those players. Sometimes players fail to settle in an area with a different environment and a different club.”
