Doncaster extend John Lundstram's loan from Everton

Doncaster have extended the loan of midfielder John Lundstram from Everton for the rest of the season.

Lundstram, 19, has impressed at the Keepmoat Stadium and could stay beyond the end of the campaign.

Rovers chairman John Ryan told BBC Radio Sheffield: "John is staying until the end of the season and, beyond that, we'll see. He has a lot of potential."

Ryan also confirmed that no decision had been made on extending the contract of manager Brian Flynn.

"We'll worry about next season when we know which league we're in," he said.

Flynn, 57, was appointed on a short-term contract until the end of the season when Dean Saunders left to take over at Wolves in January.

With eight games remaining, Rovers top League One and are two points ahead of second-placed Brentford.

"We only have to maintain our current position, but I won't cry too much into my beer if we finish second," said Ryan.

"Brian Flynn has done a great job. We wanted continuity and that's what we've got.

"This season is so close to call and I don't know what league we'll be in next season, so we'll worry about next season when we know exactly where we are."

Ryan admitted he is concerned about Rovers' stuttering home form, which many have blamed on the state of the pitch.

However, he is hopeful a new acquisition from South Yorkshire Police will improve matters.

"Chief executive Gavin Baldwin has managed to get some lamps from the police which were used to grow cannabis or something," Ryan explained.

"We're making them up into units which should help growth. To buy lamps like that costs about £200,000 which we can't afford, so we've got these from the police instead."
