Notts County have confirmed the loan extension of Sunderland goalkeeper, Anthony Patterson.
The 21-year-old originally signed for the magpies as a short - term cover for regular number one Sam Slocombe, who picked up an injury during training back in September.
We have extended Anthony Patterson's loan deal until 9 January.
Via the clubs official site, head coach Ian Burchnall said: "We'd like to say a big thank you to Sunderland for agreeing to let Anthony stay with us,
"He gives us very strong competition and both he and Sam will benefit from being pushed hard by each other every day.
"Our involvement in the cup competitions, which Anthony will be eligible for, makes the autumn/winter period a busy one for us, so this move ensures we have excellent cover to see us through."
It is believed that Anthony Patterson, still forms part of Ian Burchnall's plans within the National League - despite Sam Slocombe expecting to make his full return soon.
