Chelsea have confirmed that left-back Ben Gordon has completed his loan move to Birmingham City until 7th January.

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."
