Jesse Lingard: Staying at Birmingham

Birmingham have extended Jesse Lingard's loan from Manchester United by a further month, keeping him at the club until December 14.

The England Under-21 international has made an impressive start for the Blues since his arrival from Old Trafford last month, scoring five goals in just four appearances.

Having spent a short spell at Leicester last season, the Lancashire-born midfielder returned to United before going on the club's pre-season tour of Asia where he finished top-scorer with four goals.

With first-team opportunities few and far between at the Barclays Premier League champions, Lingard left on loan for Birmingham and has so far enjoyed a successful period with Lee Clark's men in the Sky Bet Championship.

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
