Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford extends Darlington loan

Jordan Pickford

Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will stay at Darlington until the end of April after extending his loan deal.

Pickford, 17, has played in all five of the Quakers's Blue Square Bet Premier games since arriving from the Black Cats last month.

Darlington are without a win in those five games, conceding 11 goals and picking up just one point.

The young keeper was the hero as England Under-17s beat Argentina in a penalty shoot-out last summer.
