Pearce Returns To St Andrew's

Last updated : 14 January 2008 By Brian Cartlidge

The young Blues defender has spent the past two months on loan at Meadow Lane and despite the League Two side wanting to keep the England under 19 international defender, Blues have brought the highly-rated centre-half back to St Andrew's.

"We had spoken to Birmingham last week and he was due to stay here," Magpies boss Ian McParland told the official Notts County website.

"But they have decided to take him back now. That is a blow for us."
