Everton defender Matthew Pennington is extending his loan with Tranmere Rovers for a second month.

The 19-year-old defender joined the Prenton Park outfit in January and has made six appearances, as well as scoring his first senior goal in a 1-0 win over Crewe Alexandra.

He told evertonfc.com: "I'm really enjoying it. I'm glad to get some league games under my belt, which will hopefully improve my ability.

"I've been grateful for the chance to regularly get 90 minutes on the pitch and I think that's where I'll get better.

"It's always nice to get a goal. I thought I was due one to be fair - I'd not scored for a while."
