Birmingham City set to sign Man Utd teenager Hannibal Mejbri

Birmingham City are set to win the race to sign Hannibal Mejbri on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

The Manchester Evening News reports that Birmingham have fought off competition from other Championship clubs to secure the 19-year-old.

Millwall, Middlesbrough, Burnley and West Bromwich Albion all showed interested in the Tunisia international.

United sent academy duo Teden Mengi and Tahith Chong on loan to St. Andrew's last season.

Mejbri featured in three pre-season matches for United this summer, but didn't start a single one of those games.
