Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is set to extend his loan with Birmingham City.

Brum have been allowed to extend the loan of Manchester United's Jesse Lingard for another two months.

The England U21 international's initial loan was due to expire on Sunday after City's game at Leeds United, but Blues boss Lee Clarke was desperate to extend the deal after his fantastic spell.

Clark said: "He's back from international duty and we've now got him signed up until 14 December.

"There was competition again from other clubs, but we can now breathe a sigh of relief and concentrate on football and getting a few more top performances out of him."
