Arsenal youngster Jack Jebb has extended his loan spell at Stevenage until 17 January after making two appearances for the League Two side this season.

The 19 year old featured in the league wins over Accrington Stanley and Burton Albion last month and will stay at Broadway Hall for another two months in order to add further first team experience.

Jebb is in contention to face Cheltenham Town on Saturday as Graham Westley's side chase their seventh league victory of the season.

The England youth international was a vital component of the Arsenal sides that reached the FA Youth Cup semi-final and Uefa Youth League last eight last season and is highly regarded among coaches at the club's London Colney training facility.

The Gunners currently have ten players out on loan including Carl Jenkinson, Benik Afobe and Jon Toral, all of whom are hoping to impressive sufficiently to earn regular first team appearances in the near future.

Jebb has never featured for the Arsenal first team but that hasn't stopped him dreaming of playing for the club and admits he looks up to stalwarts Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker.

"They say keep working at it, keep your head down, do extra after training to work on your bad bits, work on your good bits still," he said last month.

"The more experienced ones like Mikel Arteta and Mertesacker are good role models.

"You never know really what the future holds, I'm obviously going to aim for the best, but if not then just work my hardest to see where I can get to."

He added: "The big difference is the physicality, there's more tackles, with the 21s with Arsenal it's more about passing the ball and Stevenage is more physical.

"Intensity of training here is bang on. Like today, tackles were flying about – it's completely different to Arsenal, it's good.

"[I'm here to] just get a few league games under my belt really, get a bit of experience at League Two and work on the other side of my game, the tackling and physical side, to progress my game."
