Burton Albion have extended the loan deal of Wolves defender Scott Malone until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has been ever-present for the Brewers since making his debut against Bradford in October.

Manager Paul Peschisolido said: "Scott's done really well since he's come here. He's still a young lad but has got a really bright future.

"He offers us more of an attacking option for the full-back position with his pace and athleticism."

Malone, who spent time in League One last season with Southend, initially joined Burton in October on a one-month loan deal, before extending his stay until January.

I'm really happy we have him until the end of the season

"He had a spell out on loan at Southend last year," Peschisolido added.

"Other than that he's just been playing reserve and academy football so far. It's a big step up but he's performed well.

"I think there will be a certain amount of inconsistency but we need to be patient, and I'm really happy we have him until the end of the season."
