Bradden Inman

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Australian youngster Bradden Inman has extended his loan spell with Crewe Alexandra after a successful first month with the League One side.

The 21-year-old midfielder scored three times in five league starts for Steve Davis' side and helped the team win four of those matches, while he also played in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy success over Doncaster.

He joined Alex, initially until 2nd January, at the end of November but has now agreed to stay until 11th February.

Inman - who had scored seven goals in eight Barclays Under-21 appearances for Newcastle before heading to South Cheshire - told "I'm glad to be extending my loan at Crewe as I've had an enjoyable first month here and learnt a lot already about the game.

"I'm glad to be here for another month as the team are pushing for the play-offs and we have a good group of lads down here."

Crewe are at home to Stevenage Borough on Saturday.
