Have your say

LEICESTER midfielder Franck Moussa has agreed a new contract with the club until June 2013.

The 21-year-old Belgium youth international is currently on loan at Championship rivals Doncaster but the extension to his deal secures his place in the future plans of City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

“We spoke this week and I am delighted that Franck has agreed to extend his contract with us. He is a talented, young player with a bright future in the game ahead of him,” Eriksson said.

“Franck is a good all-round player and has the quality of being versatile. He is also doing well on loan at Doncaster, which is good news for his development.”

Robbie Fowler is to spend a week coaching at Bury, assisting caretaker manager Richie Barker.

The former Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester City striker, who enjoyed a similar short spell coaching MK Dons earlier in the campaign, is set to join Barker in the dugout for Tuesday’s home game with Burton.

A statement from the promotion-chasing League Two outfit said: “During his week with the Shakers, all the clubs strikers will spend time with Robbie sharpening their shooting boots for the final six games.

“The club are very grateful to Robbie for offering his help, and we hope that some of his talent rubs off on the players for the last month of the season.”

Peterborough have signed Rushden and Diamonds goalkeeper Joe Day for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old has signed a four-year deal at London Road and will join up with the Posh squad immediately, although he will not be able to play this season.

Carlisle are to offer Wembley hero Peter Murphy a new contract and Port Vale trio Gareth Owen, Adam Yates and Doug Loft have all been offered new deals.

Bradford captain Simon Ramsden looks set to miss the remainder of the season through injury.

Gillingham forward Dennis Oli is expected to miss the rest of the season after sustaining knee ligament damage.

Wolves winger Stephen Hunt is to undergo a hernia operation and will be out of action for several weeks.

Hunt had only returned to action in Monday’s reserve clash with Newcastle after two months on the side-lines with a calf setback.

But he is still being troubled by a hernia complaint and will go under the knife.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy, from Barnsley, said: “Hunty got fit but he couldn’t get back to full tilt, strength and energy because he was struggling. That was really shown in the reserve game on Monday.”
