Matthew Pennington has made nine appearances in all competitions for Coventry this season

Coventry City have extended the youth loan of defender Matthew Pennington from Premier League side Everton until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has featured nine times for the Sky Blues since joining the club on a short-term loan in November.

Pennington is yet to make a first-team appearance for Everton but played 17 times on loan at Tranmere last season.

Coventry slipped to 20th place in the League One table following Saturday's defeat by promotion-chasing Preston.
