Birmingham City youngster Charlie Lakin has joined Stevenage on a loan deal until the end of the season.
Blues could recall the 20-year-old in January 2020 as part of the deal.

The 20-year-old broke through last season under Garry Monk and played ten games in what was a pretty successful campaign for Blues, however he has found opportunities hard to come by under Pep Clotet this season.
Lakin hasn’t been involved in the squad under the Spaniard in the league, although he did play in the League Cup defeat at Portsmouth.
But, his lack of minutes in the Championship means it’s no surprise to see Blues have sanctioned his move to Stevenage and it was confirmed on their official site that he has signed for the League Two club.
The west Midlands outfit have insisted on a recall clause that allows the player to return to St. Andrew’s in the January window.
And, most fans feel that this is a move that suits all parties and here’s some of the reaction to the transfer on Twitter…
Happy with this 100%. @BCFC are starting to tick most of the boxes. Up the blues
