Crewe have extended the loan spell of Newcastle midfielder Brad Inman.

The Scotland Under-21 international has impressed at Gresty Road since joining in November, scoring three times in five league games - four of which the Railwaymen have won to move within touching distance of the npower League One play-off places.

Inman will now remain in Cheshire until February 11 and look to build further upon his eye-catching form alongside skipper Luke Murphy and Abdul Osman in the Alex engine room.
