Sheffield United midfielder Stefan Scougall is to stay on loan at Fleetwood Town until the end of the season

The 23 year old Scot had initially joined the north-west side on a month-long deal, but that has now been extended to cover the reaminder of the season.

Scougall has impressed in the middle of the park since making the move and has made five appearances as Fleetwood pulled away from the League One relegation zone.

Scougall said of his stay: “I’m really enjoying it here. The gaffer and the coaching staff have been brilliant. The boys have been brilliant. They have all helped me settle in really well. For me it is all about getting games and hopefully I can help keep this club up.”

Cod Army manager Steven Pressley in The Gazette praised the Scotland under 21 international's fitness since moving to the Highbury Stadium, despite his lack of game time at Bramall Lane.

“Scougall’s loan has been extended until the end of the season and we are really pleased with that because I think he could prove to be an important player between now and the end of the season.

“He’s not played a lot of football (before joining us) and his energy levels over the past three games (against Swindon Town, Peterborough and Southend) have been quite incredible.”
