CHESTER CITY have approached Liverpool with a view to extending the loan spell of striker Robbie Foy until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old Scottish-born player has impressed during his spell with City, and the club see him as a key ingredient of their push towards Football League survival.
City chairman Stephen Vaughan said last night: "We have contacted Liverpool's chief executive Rick Parry about Robbie, and we hope they will agree to the loan extension.
"Robbie has given the squad extra options during his period with us, and everybody at the club has been impressed by the contribution he has made."
In another development, Vaughan also revealed that Chester had made an inquiry about the young Liverpool goalkeeper Paul Harrison. Harrison, short spell on loan at Leeds United earlier this year, has also been an unused substitute for the Reds' first team this season.
"Paul is a player of great promise, and he would be a valuable acquisition for the future if we could sign him," said the City chairman.
Meanwhile, Chester are to offer full-time contracts to promising YTS players striker Robbie Booth and utility player Michael Walsh, who scored his first senior goal against South-end United last weekend.
Following his booking on Saturday, which was his 10th of the season, City skipper Paul Carden faces a two-match suspension.
