Striker Federico Macheda joined Birmingham City on loan from Barclays Premier League side Manchester United on 31 January 2014 until the end of the season.

The Rome-born front-man has been with the Red Devils since 2008 and has made 36 appearances for his parent club to date.

Over the past five years the former Italy U21 international has spent time out on loan with Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers and VfB Stuttgart. Most recently he was at Sky Bet Championship side Doncaster Rovers, where he made 15 appearances and scored three goals between last September and 1 January 2014.

Kiko, as Macheda is nicknamed, is a powerful striker with excellent positional sense and has a clinical finish.

His Blues debut came just a day after his arrival at the club and he scored the equalising goal in the 3-3 Sky Bet Championship draw against Derby County.
