Pennant extends Leeds stay
Jermaine Pennant
Arsenal midfielder Jermaine Pennant will remain on loan at Leeds until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has been at Elland Road since his arrival in August, originally on a two-month loan deal.

Pennant made his 32nd appearance for Leeds in their 5-0 defeat against the Gunners on Friday night.

The England Under-21 player has scored one goal for the club, who remain in the Premiership relegation zone after the defeat to Arsenal.

But it seems unlikely that Pennant will make a permanent move to Elland Road - with Arsene Wenger seemingly impressed by his performances this term and keen to have him back at Highbury.

"In my opinion he has done really well, especially recently," said Wenger.

"All the reports I have got back have been really good. He should be back next year and we want him if he accepts he must fight for his position."
