Leicester's Harry Worley extends loan deal at Crewe

Leicester City defender Harry Worley has agreed to stay at Crewe Alexandra for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old has made 12 starts for the Alex since joining in August, having missed three months with an ankle injury he suffered in training.

"He's a young lad, he wants to do well, he's got a good physique and he can play a bit as well," assistant manager Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke.

"If he can stay free of injuries, he can be a real asset for us."

Worley made his comeback in the 4-1 defeat at Macclesfield on Monday, and admitted that it was not the return to the team that he had hoped for.

The former Chelsea trainee told BBC Radio Stoke: "The pleasure of coming back into the team becomes secondary really to what's gone on.

The result was shocking, but we want to bounce back against Hereford on Saturday

"We're all really disappointed because we thought we played really well and were camped in their half for the whole game. But it's the result that matters, and it's not good enough.

"We're professional footballers and we don't want to start accepting making mistakes. The result was shocking, but we want to bounce back against Hereford on Saturday."

Defeat for Crewe at the Moss Rose brought a six-match unbeaten run to an end, although Dario Gradi's side remain just five points away from a play-off place in League Two.

Meanwhile, the permanent signing of on-loan goalkeeper Steve Phillips appears to be in doubt because of financial complications between Phillips and his parent club Bristol Rovers.

Defender Patrick Ada, who has not started a league game since 31 October, has been told he can leave the club on loan, while former captain Billy Jones is expected to be sold during the transfer window.
