Birmingham's loan signing Tara Bourne

Birmingham City bring in England U-19 international midfielder Tara Bourne on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Bourne signed her first professional deal with United last August, going out on loan to Sheffield United and then Blackburn Rovers.

She started all three of England’s group games at the recent U-19 Euros in the Czech Republic.

The 19-year-old told bcfc.com: “It feels really good. I’ve had a few sessions with the girls, and it is great group. I can’t wait to get started.

“I really wanted to be a team that was pushing for promotion and that was competing, so I’m really excited to be here.”
