Sources: George Hall exit from Birmingham City 'inevitable' as Leeds United in pole position

Birmingham City expect to sell George Hall in January with Leeds United in pole position to seal a deal, sources have told Football Insider.

The Premier League club have continued to monitor the situation of the attacking midfielder, 18, following their late-summer swoop.

A source with knowledge of Hall’s situation has told us that his departure is now seen by Birmingham as “inevitable”.

The Championship outfit rejected an offer worth £3million including add-ons from Leeds in August.

An improved package is expected to be enough to secure a deal for Hall in the January window.

Birmingham are preparing for the funds to be secured and hope to use them to sign Dion Sanderson permanently from Wolves.

Hall has now made 18 Birmingham senior appearances, 16 of which have come in this season’s Championship.

However, he has only started five of them and feels disappointed not to have had as much game time as expected when signing his first senior contract in November 2021.

Hall scored on his second appearance of the season, a 1-1 draw against Watford.

His last start for City came on 22 October, in a 2-1 loss to Blackburn.

Despite a lack of starts, Hall made his England Under-19 debut on 21 September, starting in a 2–0 win over Montenegro.

Leeds United play their final Premier League game before the World Cup break against Tottenham on Saturday (12 November).

The club are 12th in the Premier League after back-to-back wins in the top flight.
