Defender Paul Downing has extended his loan spell with Barnet from Premier League club West Brom until January 2.

The 20-year-old, who joined the League Two club a fortnight ago, has impressed Bees manager Lawrie Sanchez so far and is delighted to be staying at Underhill until the new year.

"It's been really good for me to come here and make my league debut," Downing told his club's official website.

"An extension of my loan is good for both parties."

Sanchez was equally pleased, adding: "He has come in, played well and looks a fantastic prospect."
