Alfie Bates



Signed in March 2017, the attacking midfielder made his first-team debut in the Saddlers' Checkatrade Trophy victory over Middlesbrough Under-21s.

Bates, who was on Birmingham's books before joining the Saddlers, scored on his youth team debut against Morecambe in 2016/17.

He played 28 matches for the Under-18s last term, as well as six for the Development Squad.

Bates is most comfortable in the number 10 position.
