A Birmingham statement said: "After a change in EFL rules, voted for by clubs, it means players loaned out on standard and international loans who have returned to their parent side are eligible for them again.

"Previously players were registered with their loan club for the duration of the loan, whether six months or 12 months."

Meanwhile, English Premier League side Liverpool have been confirmed as 2019/20 champions after Manchester City lost 1-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, meaning they cannot mathematically be caught in the table.

It is Liverpool's 19th title and they've done so with seven games to spare in the campaign.
