Birmingham City manager Garry Monk has signed the cheeky tattoo of a fan who lost a bet.

Kevin Tomlinson pledged to have the manager's face tattooed on his backside if Blues beat Fulham on the last day of the Championship.

Monk's side won 3-1 to clinch survival, ending Fulham's 23-game unbeaten run.

Monk, who donated £80 towards the tattoo, signed it on Wednesday at St Andrew's. The club said it was a "masterpiece".

The Blues boss had donated to fund the inking to ensure Mr Tomlinson reached his initial £100 target.

Mr Tomlinson raised more than £400 in his appeal, with remaining monies going to the Justice for the 21 campaign.
