Birmingham boss Lee Clark hopes to bring Newcastle winger Shane Ferguson back to St Andrews.
The Northern Ireland international spent the last two months of the season with Blues and Clark knows exactly what he would bring to their side in 2013/14.
Clark told the Chronicle: "Fergie came in for us last season and was brilliant.
"He was great at left wing and left-back, he made goals and scored goals.
"He's a big part of what I am trying to do. I'm trying to turn the club around.
"With the financial situation, the young players I've got are important. I gave six Academy players their debuts this season."
