The Northern Ireland international impressed the St Andrew's club following an 11-game spell last campaign.

And now the 22-year-old from Derry is determined to make an impression under manager Lee Clark with the new Championship season just around the corner.

"I am really looking forward to it," Ferguson said.

"I had a meeting with the (Newcastle) manager and he said he wanted me to get out and have a full season of games.

"I am really happy it has happened like this.

"It's good for me to get experience and come back to Birmingham.

"I just want to play as many games as I can and help the team as much as I can.

"I came for the last two months and that makes it a lot easier this time. I know all the lads and staff here.

"And the loan being over a season, that's good for me - and hopefully Birmingham, too."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
