Ben Gordon: Joins Birmingham on loan

Gordon represented Scunthorpe United in the first half of last season, before moving north of the border to Kilmarnock where he returned a Scottish League Cup winner.

Last summer Gordon was part of England's Under-20 World Cup squad, and Birmingham boss Lee Clark is delighted to add the youngster to his ranks.

Clark told the Birmingham Mail: "Ben is someone I have been monitoring over the course of the summer.

"He was high up on my list as a full-back who could challenge David Murphy.

"Ben has come with a great pedigree from his time at Leeds United as a youngster; he's a modern day full-back who likes to get forward with pace."
