England Under-21s and Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard joins Birmingham City on loan
England Under-21s forward Jesse Lingard has signed for Birmingham City on a one month loan deal from Manchester United.
The 20-year-old was handed his debut for the Under-21s by Roy Hodgson during their first game of the season against Scotland last month.
And he has now been handed the chance to add some more first-team experience at St. Andrews with the Championship outfit.
Lingard, who has previously been capped by England at U17 level, was in impressive form with United during pre-season.
With Gareth Southgate set to announce his squad for the Euro qualifiers with San Marino and Lithuania later this month, Lingard will be hoping to make a good impact with Lee Clark's side.
