West Bromwich Albion striker Chris Wood will be starting a trial loan with Npower Championship team Birmingham City in an effort to get their title chase off to a flying start, according to Sky Sports.

The young forward will be travelling down the A41 to start a one month loan with the Blues in time to join his new team’s opening game against Derby County.

The 19-year-old New Zealand international started his English career in the West Brom youth side at the age of 16, and has since enjoyed lower league loans at Barnsley and Brighton and Hove Albion to enjoy the experience of first team action.


He takes on the 39 shirt, and will compete for position with newcomer Marlon King, as well as Cameron Jerome, Adam Rooney, and Nikola Zigic.

Wood is Chris Hughton’s eighth signing of the summer transfer window, and was the youngest Kiwi player to feature in New Zealand’s South Africa World Cup campaign.
