Shane Ferguson: Newcastle winger returns to Birmingham on loan

The Newcastle winger, who had a spell at St Andrew's towards the end of last term, returns to the club on a season-long deal.

Clark admits he is delighted to land the Northern Ireland international from his former club as he aims to propel Blues towards promotion.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be able to bring Shane in," said Clark. "It's taken the longest of all the deals but he was one I wasn't going to give up on.

"He did really well for us last season and I'm sure the fans are very happy to have him back.

"I think it will be good move for him playing week in and week out, which he hasn't really done at a first-team level, because he'll get stronger and stronger.

"I've also want to thank my old club Newcastle who have done really well for us in terms of the way they've structured the deal financially for us."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
