Lingard extends Blues stay

28 November 2013

Jesse Lingard has extended his loan stay at Birmingham until the new year.

The Manchester United forward announced his arrival at St Andrew's in style as he bagged all four goals in a 4-1 Championship victory over Sheffield Wednesday in mid-September.

Lingard has gone on to score a total of six goals in seven appearances for Blues and news of his loan extension will delight boss Lee Clark.

Birmingham have managed to find the net just 18 times in 16 league games this term, with Lingard by far and away the club's leading scorer.

Lingard impressed on United's pre-season tour in the summer, leading the goalscoring charts, and David Moyes was keen to see the 20-year-old gain experience of regular first-team football out on loan.

He duly joined Blues on a youth loan deal in September, which was extended following his explosive start at the midlands club and has now been prolonged again.

The England Under-21 international will remain with Birmingham until January 1.
