Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger will be given a chance to rebuild his career at Birmingham City according to the Daily Mirror.
Blues boss Chris Hughton is currently in talks with his former employers about the possibility of taking the 20-year-old on loan at St Andrews.
Ranger has fallen out of favour at St James' Park after a spell of off-the-field problems caused Magpies boss Alan Pardew to banish him from the first-team.
Birmingham tried to sign Ranger earlier in the season in a bid to aid their promotion push, but Newcastle blocked the move due to a lack of attacking options at the club.
However, Mike Ashley, the Newcastle owner wants the disruptive influence of Ranger transfered permanently out of the club, so he may be reluctant to sanction a loan move.
Hughton has noted the player's legal problems, but having enjoyed his best spell under the former Newcastle boss, Ranger is reportedly keen for a fresh opportunity in the Championship where he can focus on his football.
