News today on the Newcastle web-site that 21 year-old Shane Ferguson has joined Birmingham City and Lee Clark on an emergency loan deal.
Shane Ferguson – on loan at Birmingham through April 1st
The loan has been arranged at St. Andrews until April 1st, so there are six league games in that period that Shane could be playing in, which includes the Wolves game on April Fools Day.
Sammy Ameobi recently joined Middlesbrough on loan through the end of the season, and we pointed out at that time, earlier this week, that it was only a matter of time before Shane went out on loan.
Shane has played 14 times for the Newcastle first team and 7 times for Northern Ireland, and it will be interesting to see where Lee Clark plays him in the Birmingham side, as he can play at left back or out on the left wing – and he’s a good player who should help Birmingham.
Birmingham are currently in 16th place in the Championship with 42 points from 34 games, and they are 7 points above the drop zone.
