Manager Ian Holloway has confirmed that he has opened talks with Stoke City abut extending the loan spell of full back Andy Wilkinson.

The 30 year old joined us from the Premier League side back at the end of October and he has since gone on to make six starts for us and had it not been for suspension he would’ve no doubt already added to that number.

With his loan deal set to expire at the end of next month, the manager confirmed that he was in talks with his parent club over hopefully extending the spell until the end of the season given the impact he’s had and the performances he’s put in.

In quotes carried by the Southwark News, the manager said.

‘We’re working on extending the loan right now. I think Andy wants to stay so that would be fantastic. He’s enjoying himself here.’

The chances of an extension are high as it’s unlikely Stoke would be looking for a fee for the player and he is apparently out of contract in the summer, so it could be a clean break leaving us free to discuss potential options for next season.

Something that wasn’t lost on Holloway either.

‘Hopefully we’ll get him until the end of the season and he’s out of contract in the summer as well. He has settled us down.’
