Date of birth
Wes Harding made his move from Birmingham City in August 2020, to become Paul Warne’s fourth signing ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
The 23-year-old, who is predominantly a right-back but can operate across the back four if required, penned a three-year-deal to keep at AESSEAL New York Stadium until 2023.
Despite still being in the relative infancy of his professional career, Harding already has useful experience for the coming season under his belt, having represented Blues over 50 times in England’s second tier.
The Leicester-born defender joined Birmingham’s academy aged 16 in 2012, having impressed in that age group he progressed through the Under-18s and Under-23s sides; both of whom he captained.
He made his professional debut for Blues in August 2017, coming off the substitutes’ bench during a 5-1 success against Crawley Town in the Carabao Cup.
His league bow came several months later in March 2018 in the 3-0 Sky Bet Championship victory against Hull City at St. Andrew's.
