Ross County have made their first move of Deadline Day with the signing of Charlie Lakin from Birmingham City.

The attacking midfielder is highly-rated at St. Andrews and has already featured for the first-team this season, playing a part as Aitor Karanka’s side lost in the League Cup to Cambridge United.

But regular senior minutes are likely to be hard to come by and Lakin heads north for experience. He will make up part of Stuart Kettlewell’s Staggies squad for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.

Last season, Lakin spent time in League Two down south with Stevenage, making 22 appearances.

A box-to-box midfielder, the 21-year-old has displayed attacking prowess on top of defensive capabilities so far in the early stages of his career.

He’s the latest Dingwall import in recent days. Jermaine Hylton moved to the Global Energy Stadium last week after ending his spell at Motherwell, club hero Josh Mullin moving on to Livingston after two years in the Highlands.
