LIVERPOOL have agreed to extend Robbie Foy's loan spell with Chester City for a further month.
The young striker's temporary transfer was due to expire on Sunday, but last night the Anfield club sanctioned a month's extension to the arrangement.
"This is great news," said City chairman Stephen Vaughan.
"Robbie is an exciting player who has given us an extra dimension in this department. He links up particularly well with Michael Branch.
"We would like to thank Liverpool for this extension to Robbie's loan, it gives all of us at Chester City a great boost."
Vaughan also revealed City were trying to sign another striker prior to next week's transfer deadline.
"Kevin Rapley has some personal problems and hasn't been seen at the club all week," he explained. "We are not aware how long these problems will continue for, so we need another striker in our squad for the final run-in to the season, and we are actively looking for a player who fits that bill."
Meanwhile, City have agreed to Forest Green Rovers' request to extend the loan spell of midfielder Andy Harris, who will remain with the Nationwide Conference club until at least April 20.
Meanwhile, veteran striker Mike Sheron, who had a trial with City last summer, has joined fellow Coca-Cola League Two strugglers Shrewsbury Town from Macclesfield.
The ex-Manchester City and Stoke City player, who has used up over £5m in transfer fees during his career, has signed a two-month contract at the Gay Meadow.
