Shane Ferguson: Joins Birmingham on loan until 1 April

The Northern Ireland international came through the Academy at St James' Park and has played 23 times for the Magpies.

But he has not featured in the Newcastle first-team since coming on as a substitute in their 7-3 defeat to Arsenal in December and will now help Lee Clark's side in their battle to pull clear of the Championship relegation zone.

The 21-year-old is in line to make his Blues debut against Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday, with his final game for the club due to be the West Midlands derby with Wolves.

Ferguson, who can also operate in defence, becomes the second Newcastle player to go out on loan to a Championship side this week, after Sammy Ameobi made the move to Middlesbrough on a temporary deal.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
