Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez extends his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday until January 1.

Sheffield Wednesday have extended the loan of Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez until the New Year.

The 21-year-old, who joined the Championship outfit on a one-month loan switch in October, will now remain at Hillsborough until January 1.

Wednesday boss Dave Jones told Sky Sports News: "We're really happy with how Damian has done, he's a quality keeper and is pushing Chris Kirkland all the way.

"You need as much competition as you can at your club and having someone of Damian's quality here can only benefit everyone involved and we're thankful to Arsenal for that."

Martinez joined Arsenal from Independiente in 2011.
