Lingard's one-month loan was due to expire this weekend, but his loan was extended to December 14. This is good news for all parties as Lingard will gain more experience and playing time and will help Birmingham.
Many have been talking about Lingard since his stunning debut against Sheffield Wednesday, in which he scored four goals.
Last season the England under-21 international had a loan spell at Leicester. Then he returned to Manchester United for their pre-season tour in Asia and came home as the club's top scorer with four goals to his name.
New manager David Moyes made the decision to send the youngster on loan to Birmingham and now Lee Clark is grateful of that decision and the extension of Lingard's loan.
"It's very positive for us," Clark told the Birmingham Mail.
"There were a lot of clubs in for him before we initially got him, but the impact he has made since he has been here meant that even more clubs became keen.
"But we thank Manchester United and David Moyes for their help on this one and I think they can see that we are hopefully developing the player the right way for them."
