Chuks Aneke's loan spell with Crewe Alexandra has been further extended, until January 21, subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
The 19-year-old midfielder has established himself as a regular in Steve Davis’ side since his arrival in September, showing his versatility with successful stints in behind the main strikers, and more recently in a deeper role in the centre of midfield.
In total, Aneke has featured 19 times so far for the Railwaymen, scoring four goals.
The Newham-born youngster made his first-team debut for Arsenal in the 3-1 League Cup victory over Shrewsbury Town in September 2011. He gained further senior experience with the Gunners over the summer during the pre-season tour of Asia, scoring the winner against a Malaysia XI in Kuala Lumpur.
Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Chuks well for his continued stay at the Alexandra Stadium.Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.arsenal.com as the source 17 Dec 2012
