David Petrucci is pleased to have extended his loan stay with Peterborough

Petrucci has started both of Posh's npower Championship fixtures since joining the club on an initial month-long deal on January 9.

The 21-year-old midfielder told the club's official website: "I am very happy. I only signed for a month in the first place because it was my first loan spell.

"I didn't know what to expect. However, since the first few days I realised that I wanted to stay for longer and I am very pleased to be here until the end of the season."

Posh have also signed Tottenham youngster Alex Pritchard on loan until the end of the season.

Pritchard, 20, a reported target for Liverpool recently, has impressed for Spurs' youth and reserve sides but has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Barclays Premier League club.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony said via Twitter: "Delighted to announce loan signing of Alex Pritchard from Spurs who has joined until end of season. He is a fantastic young talent.

"Myself & Gaffer watched this young lad destroy our reserve team couple weeks ago scoring 4 goals from playing left wing / right wing / attacking midfield."

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
