Riley McGree returns to Charlotte FC following expiration of Birmingham City loan

Midfielder Riley McGree has departed Birmingham City and returned to Charlotte FC following the expiration of his loan.

The seven-time Australia international was picked up by Charlotte in October 2020 after a successful period with Adelaide United in the A-League and was immediately loaned out to Birmingham.

McGree has remained at St Andrew’s ever since, grabbing three goals and two assists in 30 appearances across all competitions and proving a hit with Birmingham supporters.

There had been some hope McGree’s loan spell could be extended a little while longer, or that Charlotte could be tempted to sell the 23-year-old.

“All I can tell you is what I have said before, Craig [Gardner] has been banging that drum, trying to make that happen – that Riley stays,” Birmingham boss Lee Bowyer said earlier in December (via Birmingham Live).
