Adam Wharton’s entrance to Crystal Palace may not be good for Birmingham City.

Adam Wharton’s midfielder transfer from Blackburn Rovers to Crystal Palace during the mid-season transfer window is just another illustration of the exceptional talent that the Championship has produced. The midfielder has received a great deal of praise for his efforts thus far.

Pundits and supporters have praised the midfielder after five Premier League outings in less than a month, and Palace’s dedication to playing Championship players will benefit them in the future when cherry-picking the top players from the lower leagues.

However, given that Jordan James is probably going to move on in the future and that the Eagles are a team that is keeping a close eye on his play, Birmingham City may start to fear the worst.

After departing from his local team to pursue opportunities in London during the January transfer window, Wharton acknowledged that their reputation for guiding Championship players into the top division played a significant role in his growth.

Wharton stated on the official Crystal Palace website: “Observing Palace from the outside and observing Marc [Guéhi], Ebs [Eze], and Michael [Olise], witnessing their success in the Championship and their early transfer to Palace, and still having the chance to prove their mettle in the Premier League, as well as assisting them in developing into international players.”

Only a handful of other teams perform this task as well as Palace has in recent years.

“So why wouldn’t I want to do it if I could accomplish the same goals as them and advance as much as they have since joining?

“They had the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities, earn minutes, and improve. I had the exact same desire to do that.

After the match, I felt like I performed fairly well. I wanted to play against teams like that more frequently following that game.

“I relished the challenge of competing against more skilled players, as the game was more tactical and required more skill to get across the pitch, among other things.”

With Palace being linked with a move for Jordan James of Birmingham City in recent times, Wharton’s admission and their genuine track record of signing the likes of Eze, Olise and more means that talents from the second tier can see a genuine path to stardom at Selhurst Park.

James’ time at Birmingham is probably going to be brief because of the attention he is receiving. In the January transfer window, he was linked to a move to the Italian team Atalanta. This indicates that a team participating in European competition is interested in signing the Wales international.

Oliver Glasner’s team may find Wharton, who is less experienced than James, to be a very appealing option if he can waltz into the Palace starting 11. There is no reason why the star from Hereford cannot force his way in as well.

With eight goals in 33 Championship games this season, the teenager is showing to be one of the best young talents not only at the level but in the nation, which is certainly helping his prospects of making the jump to the top division overall.

Jordan James’s most recent transfer

Despite supposedly reaching a personal terms agreement, Atalanta was unable to sign James in January, and there have been reports that other teams are interested in the midfield player.

Palace is one of such teams, but if he moved, he would probably only contribute to the squad in the early going in South London because Jefferson Lerma, Cheikh Doucoure, and Wharton are at the very least expected to be ahead of him in the standings.

Wolves were also said to have expressed interest in January, but any transfer would have to wait until the summer. In that scenario, James is more likely to wait and select the best alternative if he decides to leave St. Andrew’s.
