Colchester extend Potts loan

Colchester have extended the loan of defender Dan Potts from Premier League outfit West Ham for a further month.

Potts joined the U's from the Hammers towards the end of November and will now remain with the League One club until January 27 2013.

Potts has made three appearances for Joe Dunne's side and the extension means he will be available for another eight matches.

The first of those fixtures is the away game at Walsall on Saturday and he has been included in the travelling party.
