Birmingham have signed Arsenal's Jermaine Pennant on loan for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old winger becomes Steve Bruce's second loan signing of the transfer window after Salif Diao joined from Liverpool. Pennant spent last season on loan at Leeds, but had wanted to earn a place in Arsene Wenger's first team this term.

The former Notts County youngster was arrested at the weekend after being involved in a car crash, forcing him out of The Gunners' clash with Newcastle on Sunday. He has to attend a February 1 hearing at Magistrates Court to answer charges of drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance, as he was already on a 16-month driving ban.

Pennant, however, had not earned a regular slot in Wenger's starting XI, and he has been linked with several loan moves away from Highbury. His current contract at Arsenal expires at the end of the season and it remains to be seen if he will get another chance with The Gunners.

Birmingham City have placed Jermaine Pennant's loan move from Arsenal on hold. The Premiership champions confirmed on Monday evening that the England Under-21 international had linked up with Blues for the rest of the season. But Pennant's impending court appearance to answer charges of drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance have put the deal on the backburner.

if it happens that way, is career at arsenal, it will be finished i reckon. he will find it near impossible to get back in there, and to be honest, maybe a team like birmingham are the right choice to get his career back on track

Maybe thats what Arsenal were thinking, out him while they have the chance. If he goes down they will release him for sure. Makes you wonder now why they was reluctant to offer him a new deal quite a few weeks ago. Maybe they knew something we didn't eh?

Birmingham boss Steve Bruce will stand by Jermaine Pennant even if he is sent to prison.

The 22-year-old signed for Birmingham on loan from Arsenal, but has a courts case hanging over him.

Pennant has recently appeared at Aylesbury Magistrates' Court and pleaded guilty to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and also driving without insurance.
