Sheffield Wednesday have extended the loan deal of Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez until the new year.

The highly-rated 21-year-old, who joined Wednesday in October and has impressed during his initial month-long loan stint at the club, will now remain at Hillsborough until January 1.

Wednesday manager Dave Jones said: "We're really happy with how Damian has done, he's a quality keeper and is pushing Chris Kirkland all the way.

"You need as much competition as you can at your club and having someone of Damian's quality here can only benefit everyone involved and we're thankful to Arsenal for that."
