Birmingham City have confirmed that Riley McGree will remain at the club until January 2022 after a new loan agreement was reached with Charlotte FC.

The Australian is currently contracted to the MLS expansion franchise, but as they are not yet in the league, he has been able to leave temporarily.
A switch to Blues was sorted for the current campaign and the club announced on their official site that fresh terms have been signed off meaning McGree will stay at St. Andrew’s until the New Year.
Even though he only featured in 15 games this season, many Blues fans can see that the 22-year-old has potential. Plus, like most of his teammates, he appeared to benefit from the arrival of Lee Bowyer, with the side improving significantly under his guidance.
Does St Andrew’s have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
So, there was a lot of happy fans when the news broke about McGree re-joining, and here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Very happy with this decision 💙

I'm a fan of this. Bowyer obviously rates him, he's versatile and is clearly one of the better technical players within the squad. https://t.co/Oi8nNLC7g7
