The loan will last until October 20, Birmingham's website (www.bcfc.com) said.

The England Under-21 attacking midfielder is regarded as an exciting prospect.

Lingard, who can play across midfield, turned out for the Premier League champions in pre-season, scoring the first goal of the David Moyes era against the A-League All Stars.

Birmingham will hope Lingard's arrival will start a surge up the league with the club in 21st place after a poor start to the season, having taken only four points in their first seven games.
