Birmingham City have re-signed former midfielder Craig Gardner on loan from West Brom with a view to a permanent three-year deal at the end of the season.

The midfielder made 52 appearances for Birmingham in the 2010-11 season helping the club to win the League Cup before he was signed by Sunderland.

The 30 year-old joined Albion in 2014 and scored six times in 85 appearances in his two-and-a-half year spell.

He now joins his boyhood team on loan with the move possibly becoming permanent at the end of the season.
