The Albion goalkeeper will stay at Roots Hal for another week.

Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Christian Walton has had his emergency loan at Southend United extended for a further seven-day period, up to and including Saturday 22nd April.

The 21-year-old made his Shrimpers debut in the 3-0 victory over Oldham Athletic on Saturday 1st April, and has made four appearances for Phil Brown's side to date.

The extension means Walton will also be eligible to play in their fixture away at Shrewsbury Town next Saturday.

In line with EFL rules, Southend were independently certified as having no professional goalkeepers fit to play. The League One club has twice since applied to extend Walton’s loan for a further period of seven days, which was accepted on both occasions.
