Cheltenham Town have signed centre-back Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson from West Ham on a one-month loan.

The 19-year-old Iceland Under-21 man played alongside former Robins loanee Josh Payne in West Ham's reserve match with Portsmouth earlier this week.

Town defender Shane Duff was ruled out for six months with a Achilles injury earlier this week.

The Robins have also extended the loan of midfielder Sam Cox from Spurs for a further two weeks.

Eyjolfsson was part of the Iceland Under-21 team which won 6-2 in Belfast against Northern Ireland last month.
