Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen on the 21-year-old and while a loan bid remains a possibility, the Molineux club may even make a cash bid for his services and push for a permanent move.However, Lee Clark wants the kid to sign for Birmingham City.
The problem is, he turns 22 this month, but looks 12, and he lacks the strength of a tough-tackling defender.Ferguson is said to be valued at £1.5million – even though Gazza described him as "the best talent I have seen at Newcastle in the last decade".
Ferguson’s initial aim was to fight for his place at United, but he is well down the pecking order for a first team place.The asks the question - what good is the Academy?
Despite signing countless foreign youngsters over the years - how many have progressed to hold down regular positions in the first team?
Last summer Alan Pardew challenged him to show he could cut it in the first team, and although he did chip in with 14 appearances in all competitions with three assists, Ferguson was farmed out on loan at Birmingham City, with the United boss eager for him to play regular football.
