Billy Clifford

Colchester United have extended the loan of Chelsea midfielder Billy Clifford until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has started all five games since his arrival, winning three of them to help end a nine-game losing run for the U's.

"Physically, I feel better than I have been before and I can't wait to attack the rest of the games in front of us," he told the club website.

"When I first came, I was surprised to see the position we were in."

He added: "But the gaffer brought in myself, Sam Walker and David Wright, and we've begun to turn things around and things are looking encouraging for the rest of the season."
