The attacking midfielder, 20, arrives at St Andrew's to bolster a Blues squad which has struggled so far this season, winning just one and losing five of their opening seven Sky Bet Championship matches.

Lingard, who can play anywhere across midfield, arrives as one of United's most highly regarded assets on the fringes of David Moyes' first team.

Capped by England's Under-21 side last month, Lingard is yet to make his senior debut for United but spent two months on loan at Leicester last season, making five substitute appearances.

He is in the frame to make his debut at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and has been allocated the number nine shirt by Birmingham boss Lee Clark.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
