The Albion shot-stopper will remain with the Essex club for another week.

Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Christian Walton has had his emergency loan at Southend United extended for a further seven-day period, until Friday 14th April.

The 21-year-old made his Shrimpers debut in the 3-0 victory over Oldham Athletic last Saturday, and also featured in the 1-0 defeat at home to Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.

The extension means Walton will also be eligible to play in Southend’s fixture away at Charlton Athletic this afternoon.

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