West Ham kid Payne extends Cheltenham stay

West Ham academy boss Tony Carr has confirmed teenage defender Josh Payne is spending a third month on-loan at Cheltenham.

He told the club's website: "Martin Allen wanted him and he wanted to stay. We are happy with that - the long-term development of the player was more to the fore than our need for him in the FA Youth Cup.

"He is playing league football in big stadiums every week which is all great for his long-term development."
