Coventry boss Andy Thorn is keen to extend loanee Gary Gardner's stay at the Ricoh Arena.

The 19-year-old midfielder, borrowed from Aston Villa, scored on his debut for the Sky Blues in the 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Saturday and Thorn has been impressed by how quickly he has settled in.

"He's got some quality, there is no question about that and we want to keep him," he told the Coventry Telegraph.

"We just hope that we can make the boy feel welcome and that Villa sign more midfield players in January.

"We will look after him and he's enjoying himself and long may that continue.

"He's fitted in with the group and the boys like what they see. They are all talking about him and it has given everyone a lift."
