Coventry City have extended the loan deal for Adam Armstrong until the end of the season, according to The Chronicle.
Armstrong’s loan deal was due to expire on January 16, but The Magpies have decided to leave him on loan at Coventry in order to gain more first team experience.
However, they have inserted a recall clause into the loan extension. 18-year-old Armstrong has been in superb form this season for The Sky Blues and has 13 goals in 21 appearances this campaign.
He is set to face Crewe on Saturday and Coventry boss Tony Mowbray said that the young strikers future will be revealed after the game at Gresty Road.
However, Steve McLaren told The Chronicle “I think it’s a season long loan, but we still have a recall on that whenever we want. But we are leaving him at Coventry for now.”
The news is likely to be a huge boost for Coventry, who have suffered a slight dip in form lately.
Despite this, they have still been largely impressive in Sky Bet League One this season and lie in fourth place heading into 2016.
