Newcastle United defender Shane Ferguson has extended his loan spell at Millwall.

The Northern Irish defender initially moved to The Den last month and was due to return to Tyneside in November.

But Lions’ boss Neil Harris has moved to keep the 24 year-old in south-east London until the new year, with the deal extended until January 9, 2016.

Ferguson has made two starts and two substitute appearances for Millwall so far this season.

The League One side are currently 19th.
