Long has made one first-team appearance for Everton

Championship side Brentford have extended the loan deal of Everton striker Chris Long until 2 May.

The 20-year-old could have his youth loan extended further should the west London club reach the play-offs.

Long has scored four goals in 10 appearances for the Bees since moving to Griffin Park in January.

He has not played for Brentford since Good Friday because of illness and injury but he featured for Everton's Under-21 side last week.

"Chris is a very talented player and one we very much look forward to welcoming back to the club for the remainder of the season," Bees boss Mark Warburton told the club website.external-link
