Newcastle United midfielder Gael Bigirimana has extended his loan spell at Coventry City until Sunday, 24th January.

The 22-year-old initially joined the League One promotion-chasers in November, on an emergency loan deal until the start of this month.

And after five appearances for the Sky Blues - in which Bigirimana is yet to taste defeat - that agreement has now been extended.

Bigirimana joined Newcastle from Coventry in July 2012, and the Burundi international has made 13 Premier League appearances, as well as being a regular for the Club's under-21 side.
