Manchester United loan starlet enjoying his football - Clark

Published Add your comment

Manchester United starlet Jesse Lingard is enjoying his Championship loan spell with Birmingham City, according to Blues boss Lee Clark.

20-year-old Lingard, who was part of the Red Devils side who triumphed in the 2010/11 Youth Cup with a final victory over Sheffield United, joined the Midlands outfit on an initial one-month loan deal during mid-September and wowed fans at St Andrew's by notching four goals on his debut against Sheffield Wednesday.

The England youth international, who spent a brief spell at Leicester City last season, also registered on the scoresheet during the dying minutes of Tuesday's emphatic 4-0 victory over Millwall but his temporary deal is set to expire on October 20th. 

Birmingham boss Clark, who took charge of the club in June 2012, has claimed that the United youngster is enjoying his football at present and he evidently hopes they will take that into account when reviewing the loan later this month.

"We have got him for a month initially. They want to then review it, see how things are going and how Jesse is getting on. I hope they see that Jesse is enjoying his football," Clark told the Birmingham Mail in an interview that was quoted by Sky Sports.

"What happened last time when he went out to Leicester, he didn't start any games and he became a bit frustrated and they didn't want another scenario like that.

"I am hoping that David is seeing that he is enjoying his football, he's doing lots of good things, we are being good to him," he added.
