Wayne Rooney was officially appointed Birmingham City manager today.
This comes after weeks of speculation that The Blues were planning to turn to the former Manchester United and England captain and replace John Eustace in the role.
Now that the former Derby County and DC United manager has stepped into St Andrews, many are wondering whether he will use his Old Trafford connections to bring some United players down to Birmingham.
It’s not unheard of former club legends turning to their former clubs to sign players at the beginning of their new spell and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if the same happened here with Rooney and Birmingham City.
With Ethan Laird already having joined The Blues from United last summer, Rooney’s entrance at the club would only make things easier to get deals done.
In this article, we’ll highlight five players who we believe could be options for Birmingham to sign on loan in January.
