MIDFIELDER Luke Summerfield will be staying with Orient for a third month.

The 21-year-old central midfielder will remain at Brisbane Road until three days before Christmas - taking his time at the club to the maximum 93-day period for loans.

Summerfield was set to make his 12th appearance for the O's against Gillingham on Tuesday night and he has started every league game since he joined at the end of September from Championship side Plymouth Argyle.

The loan extension means that Summerfield will be available for four more matches, with his final game due to be at Walsall on December 19.

O's boss Geraint Williams was delighted that the midfielder is staying.

"He has done really well since he has been here and given us competition for places in the midfield area," he said.
