Walsall have extended Joe Murphy's loan spell until the end of the season.

The West Brom custodian initially joined Walsall on a one-month loan deal in October, but that was extended to three months.

The former Tranmere Rovers man has seen his first team opportunities limited by the form of West Brom number one Russell Hoult and West Brom are willing to let him stay out on loan.

Murphy has impressed at the Bescot Stadium and Saddlers boss Paul Merson was keen to keep him at the club.

West Brom have the option of recalling Murphy at any time with 24 hours' notice.
