Crewe extend Evans loan

Crewe have extended the loan of Manchester City midfielder George Evans until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has made 15 appearances for Alex so far after making his initial loan switch on October 31, the latest of them in the 3-0 home victory over Sheffield United last weekend.

Evans, who has yet to feature for City's first team, told Crewe's official website: "I am delighted to stay. I've enjoyed the experience and feel I am developing as a player.

"I've spoken to Manchester City and they know that Crewe is a great club for me to play and develop.

"I am just grateful to Crewe for giving me the opportunity and now we have to build on what we achieved against Sheffield United on Saturday."
