On-loan Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic

League One promotion hopefuls Walsall have extended winger Milan Lalkovic's loan until the end of the season.

The Slovakian Under-21 international arrived at the Banks's Stadium from Chelsea in July on a half-season loan.

He has scored four goals in 14 starts to help Walsall climb to within a point of the League One play-off zone.

"I have said many times that I wanted to stay here. I feel that I can keep improving under Dean Smith and Richard O'Kelly," the 21-year-old said.

"I am pleased that this deal has now been sorted and I can concentrate on my football and helping the club achieve more points.

Saddlers boss Smith added: "He is getting better each week and has a hunger to learn and improve.

"Thankfully Chelsea see this as the right place for him to be able to do that."
