Blues have today completed the signing of midfielder Ravel Morrison on a season-long loan from West Ham United.
The highly-rated 19-year-old arrives at St. Andrew's from the Barclays Premier League club looking to gain further first-team experience and will bolster Lee Clark's midfield ranks.
Morrison, who has represented England up to under-18 level, began his career at Manchester United where he lifted the 2010/11 FA Youth Cup.
The Manchester-born talent made three appearances in the League Cup for the Red Devils before joining West Ham on a three-and-a-half year contract in January 2012.
Morrison has been given first-team squad number 12 for the 2012/13 campaign.
