ROOKIE Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford has extended his loan spell with cash-strapped strugglers Darlington.

England youth international Pickford has played in all five of the Quakers’ Blue Square Premier outings since arriving at the Arena last month, and will now remain with the non-league outfit until April 21.

The Washington-born 17-year-old made 18 appearances for Sunderland’s youth team earlier in the season, and was part of the Black Cats’ first-team party for their pre-season tour of Germany.
