The 20-year-old initially joined the Blues on loan on September 21 and made an immediate impact by scoring four goals on his debut in the 4-1 home win over Sheffield Wednesday.

He has netted twice more in six games since then with City winning three, drawing one and losing three in his seven appearances.

Lingard will now be available to Birmingham boss Lee Clark for a further eight games - injury and suspension permitting - including the clash with Barnsley at St Andrew's on New Year's Day.

The England U21 international has yet to make a first-team appearance for United.

Clark was quoted on Birmingham's official Twitter account as saying: "Brilliant news. We are a fantastic team when he's playing in it. Everyone knows he's a very talented player."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
