Mansfield Town have extended the loan of Callum Elder from Premier League side Leicester City by a further month.

The 20-year-old full-back, who is yet to play for the Foxes' first team, has made five appearances for the Stags since joining in January.

Meanwhile, midfielder Jack Thomas, 18, has been recalled from his loan spell at Conference North outfit Hednesford.

He has been named in Mansfield's squad for the first time on Tuesday, as they travel to face Morecambe in League Two.

"We feel Jack has come a long way in his loan period at Hednesford," said Stags boss Adam Murray.

"We have no worries about introducing Jack into the first-team environment and with the injuries we have at the minute, the time is right to recall him."
