Reading defender Marcus Williams' loan spell at Sheffield United has been extended to the maximum 93 days.

The 25-year-old initially joined for a month, with his spell set to come to an end after Sunday's Steel City derby against Sheffield Wednesday.

But Williams, who joined Reading in July 2010 from Scunthorpe, will now stay at Bramall Lane until 13 December.

The defender has played three times for Sheffield United since arriving on loan but recently suffered a dead leg.
