Arsenal starlet, Ryan Smith, will increase the length of his loan contract with Leicester City when his current deal expires in January.

Smith has been a big hit with the club since going on loan and they were very keen to hang onto him a little bit longer before he rockets his way to stardom.

Craig Levein appeared very grateful to the North London outfit and insists that there generosity will be repaid when Smith returns to the club.

‘We are grateful to Arsenal for allowing us to do the deal.

‘Even though he’s done well for us so far in games, from what I’ve seen on the training ground there’s still more to come from him.

‘I’m not usually a fan of loans without a view to making the deal permanent but in this case I feel it is justified,’ he added.

‘Obviously Arsenal will reap the rewards in the long run, but for now we’re getting the benefits.’
