Manchester United let Hannibal Mejbri join Birmingham on loan

Manchester United midfielder Hannibal Mejbri has joined Birmingham City on a season-long loan.

Mejbri could make his Birmingham debut as early as Tuesday, if his clearance comes through in time to face Norwich in the Sky Bet Championship.

The 19-year-old Tunisia international was part of Erik ten Hag's pre-season tour squad and featured in two matches in Thailand and Australia.

He made his senior debut for Manchester United on the final day of the 2019/20 season and played twice in the Premier League last year - a substitute appearance against Liverpool at Anfield before making his first start in the 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace.

"It is an honour to come and play for this club," the former France youth international told BluesTV.

"I have heard a lot of good things from my friends who have played here before, so I am ready to come and play for this club."
