Bristol Rovers defender extends spell away

Bristol Rovers defender Sam Heal has extended his loan spell away at North Leigh. He joined the Southern League Premier South side on an initial one-month deal in September to get some experience under his belt.

He will now remain away from the Memorial Ground until the end of December as he looks to carry on getting regular game time. His parent club make the trip to Hillsborough tomorrow on the back of their 2-2 draw with Plymouth last time out.

Derby County boss Paul Warne is looking to bring in some signings in the January transfer window. He is eager to put his own stamp on his newly inherited squad with a couple of additions and has told Derbyshire Live: “January is coming where we are going to have reshuffle the pack a little bit, but I just think the squad and the team, have got a really good bone structure without sounding a bit weird.

“We just need to add to it. The strength in depth is a little bit of an issue, but we can’t complain about where the club is now to where it was three or four months ago are two different places. There are lots to applaud, to enjoy, a lot to get excited about and hopefully, that will start again tomorrow night.”
