From Neal Ardley today:
"His deal is until the end of the season. There’s always a clause where, at some point in January, the parent club can pull him back but that’s not something we feel is going to happen. As far as we’re concerned, he’s happy.
"As he’s a young player, we set targets for how many appearances we’d give him over the course of the season, be those starts or off the bench, and we’re confident he’ll meet them with the number of games we have left to play.
"He’s been great in training – he’s coming on leaps and bounds – and hopefully he’ll be with us until the end of the season."
