Stags strengthen midfield with new signing

27th July 2021

Mansfield Town have announced the loan signing of Birmingham City midfielder Ryan Stirk on a deal that runs until the end of the season.

Stirk, 20, is a graduate of the Blues’ academy and appeared on two occasions in the Sky Bet Championship last season.

After joining the club full-time as a scholar, Stirk signed on professional terms – a three-year deal with an option to extend for a further year – in November 2017.

He was also part of the Blues’ under-18 side that reached the FA Youth Cup semi-final in 2018.

During the 2018/19 campaign, the midfielder made 23 appearances for Birmingham’s under-23s.

Stirk has also represented Wales at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.

Manager Nigel Clough said: “Ryan is a young midfielder, who played in the same Birmingham under-23s team as Ryan Burke.

“He has some experience in the first team at Birmingham and shows a lot of potential.

“Recent injuries to George Lapslie, Harry Charsley and Jason Law have highlighted that we could be a little light in this area. He’ll therefore give good competition in midfield.”
