Swindon Town are in talks with Celtic about extending the loan deal of Simon Ferry, but insist that nothing has been agreed yet.

The 21-year-old has impressed since joining the Robins from Celtic in August and is due to return to the SPL leaders in January if a deal cannot be done.

However, Robins boss Danny Wilson has told skysports.com that the League One club are doing all they can to ensure that the tenacious midfielder stays at the County Ground for the rest of the season.

"We would like to do something to extend Simon's stay with us, but nothing has been agreed just yet," said Wilson.

Full of beans

"We are still in the talking process with Celtic, but hopefully something can be done.

"It won't be finalised any time in the near future though. It will probably take a couple of weeks to sort everything out.

"He has done very well in terms of what we have asked him to do. He needed to get some games under his belt because he wasn't playing for Celtic for obvious reasons and he is thoroughly enjoying it here.

"We are enjoying him being here as well and he is a cracking lad, full of beans, so hopefully we can keep him a bit longer."
