West Ham youngster Martin Samuelsen has extended his loan spell at Peterborough United until the end of the season, the club have confirmed.

The 18 year old signed for The Hammers from Manchester City this summer and is highly rated by coaching staff at the club.

However, he will now remain on loan at Peterborough until the end of this campaign, as they hunt a return to the second tier.

The attacking midfielder netted a stunning goal against Sheffield United on Saturday to secure all three points for Posh and impressed the week before against Chesterfield.

The Norwegian teenager has also been granted permission by his parent club to feature in the FA Cup for Peterborough, who host Championship side Preston North End on Saturday.

Peterborough started this campaign poorly and parted company with boss Darren Ferguson.

However, since the appointment of Graham Westley they have seen an upturn in form and now lie sixth in League One, occupying the final play off spot.

They have scored the most goals in the division.
