Birmingham City are in talks to sign Hannibal Mejbri on loan from Manchester United.
The 19-year-old Tunisia international is attracting interest from several Championship sides but John Eustace’s side are winning the race to sign the attacking midfielder on loan.
The Athletic understands a final decision is yet to be made as Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion have also registered an interest.United want the move finalised as soon as possible with the season already underway.
Hannibal failed to make the substitutes’ bench for United’s first two games of the season against Brighton & Hove and Brentford.
The Monaco academy graduate featured in pre-season under new manager Erik ten Hag against Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Rayo Vallecano.
Hannibal has made three first-team appearances for United since moving to Old Trafford in August 2019 for a fee that could rise to £9.3million.
Birmingham have started the Championship season with one win, one draw and one defeat.
