Highly-rated West Ham United goalkeeper Sam Howes has extended his loan at Wealdstone.

The 18-year-old, who is tipped for a big future for club and country, initally joined the Conference South side on a month’s loan in December, but that deal has now been extended by a further month.

Howes has made three appearances for Gordon Bartlett’s side to date, keeping one clean sheet to date.

The England Under-18 keeper, who made his first-team debut for the Hammers 18 months ago on a pre-season tour of New Zealand, was brought in to deputise for Stones No 1 Jonathan North who recently underwent knee surgery.

Howes’ initial loan ends on Saturday, with it recommencing for a further month from midnight.

Stones currently lie 16th in the division, three points clear off the relegation zone, although they have a few games in hand over the teams below them.
