MILLWALL have reached an agreement with Sheffield Wednesday to extend the loan of Mark Beevers until January, NewsAtDen understands.

The Lions have been in talks with the Owls all week about keeping the centre-back beyond the end of his initial 28-day spell and terms were thrashed out on Thursday afternoon.

Wednesday have the option of recalling the 22-year-old at 24 hours' notice.

Beevers was due to return to Hillsborough after Saturday's game against Nottingham Forest but manager Kenny Jackett recently confirmed he would speak to counterpart Dave Jones about an extension.

The former England U19 international has made four appearances for Millwall, scoring one goal, since moving to The Den at the start of October – and the Lions have been unbeaten since.

And Beevers will now remain in SE16 until after Christmas to provide cover for injured captain Paul Robinson, who could be at least five weeks away from a return to action.
