Conor Grant’s loan stay at Doncaster Rovers has been extended until January 2.

The Everton midfielder’s initial one-month loan expired this week.

Grant, 20, scored on his debut against Colchester and has played every minute of Rovers’ last six games.

Speaking last week, Rovers boss Darren Ferguson said he hoped to keep Grant and Everton teammate Felipe Mattioni beyond January.
