Sky Sports understands that highly-rated midfielder Tom Adeyemi has handed in a transfer request at Birmingham City.
The 22-year-old has spent just 12 months at St Andrew’s after completing a switch from Norwich City last summer.
The 2013/14 campaign proved to be a productive one on a personal level as he was close to being an ever-present under Lee Clark.
It was, however, to be a difficult season for Birmingham as they avoided relegation out of the Sky Bet Championship on the final day.
Adeyemi feels the time is now right for him to be moving on again, despite still having a year left to run on his current contract.
Birmingham will, however, be reluctant to part with his services as Clark made the youngster his vice-captain in June and is predicting big things for him in the future.
