PREMIER - Riley McGree on his future at Birmingham City

Since joining Birmingham this season, the 23-year-old has been in terrific form, and he has managed to provide a spark to the side from the middle of the field. McGree has scored two goals in 10 Championship games this season, while also averaging one vital pass and 1.4 successful dribbles per game.

As a result, it seems doubtful that the Blues and the MLS side could reach an agreement to extend his stay at St Andrews. That's despite the fact that his contract with his parent club still has two years left on it.

McGree told Birmingham Live that he is loving life at Birmingham and that he will continue to give his all for the club till he leaves.

“I’m just loving my football. I will give everything for this club no matter what position I’m playing in. In training I’m pushing myself to get minutes here and there.

“It’s been really good to get some solid minutes and hopefully I can keep it up.

“It [going to Charlotte] is what it is at the moment. I’m going to give 100 percent week in week out, game in game out for Birmingham.

“I love playing for this club. I love this club, and no matter where I’m playing or what I’m doing, I’m going to give 100 percent for this club.

“I love English football. As a youngster growing up in Australia, this is ultimately where you want to have a young career and a good career. Time will tell. We will see what happens.”

On whether he could return to England in January he added: “Who knows? At the moment, my contractual situation is I go back in January to Charlotte. If that changes, I’m sure everyone will find out. I’ve got two years left with an option.

“Can I see that changing? I don’t know. Time will tell. Contractually right now, I’m planning to go back in January, but I’m just focusing on every game at Birmingham and we will see what happens.”
