Leicester City have given left-back Alan Sheehan permission to extend his loan spell at Mansfield Town to a second month. The 20-year-old Irishman has impressed during his six appearances since joining the Stags on September 8 and manager Peter Shirtliff is delighted he is staying on. "Alan is a promising young player and he has done well since he came here," Shirtliff told the Evening Post. "I think he has enjoyed it here because he is playing in front of decent crowds instead of in reserve team football. "He is also playing in competitive, rather than meaningless matches, where the standard is much higher and you are pushed that little bit more."
