Chris wants good Laet

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CHRIS HUGHTON has launched a bid to sign Man United de­fender Ritchie De Laet on loan.

Birm­ing­ham boss Hughton wants Sir Alex Fer­gu­son to do him a favour by lend­ing him 23-year-old De Laet.

The Bel­gium in­ter­na­tional has re­cently re­turned from a back in­jury that cut short his loan spell at Nor­wich last year.

And Hughton is tar­get­ing the full-back for a switch to St An­drew’s af­ter Stephen Carr’s per­sis­tent knee prob­lem.

Blues signed An­dros Townsend and Erik Husek­lepp last week.
