Birmingham City’s 18-year-old midfielder Brandon Khela, a player of Indian origin, has agreed fresh terms, tying him to the Club until at least June 2027.
The news comes during a campaign where he made history by becoming the first British South Asian player to represent the Men’s First Team, debuting in August’s Carabao Cup First Round win at Cheltenham Town.
Khela explained how there is no better place to continue his career.
“I am delighted. It shows that the Club have faith in me. It is a great place to be at the moment.”
“Coming through the ranks as an Academy player since the age of eight, I am just delighted really.”
Khela, who joined Blues at pre-Academy, turned pro in the summer of 2022, 12 months into his two-year scholarship, before making 25 appearances for Steve Spooner’s Under-21s alongside training with the senior group.
This summer he was part of the squad that travelled to Spain for a pre-season training camp and after his appearance at Cheltenham, the 18-year-old made his Sky Bet Championship bow when Huddersfield Town were beaten 4-1 in B9.
