Development Squad central defender Alfie Mawson has extended his loan spell at Maidenhead United
. Alfie played nine games for Maidenhead – who play in the Skrill South, the new name for the Conference South – in two spells last season and joined them for a second time at the start of the month. He signed a new Youth Loan agreement with the Berkshire club which ran out on Tuesday, October 29. Alfie has played one game of his second loan spell so far and has now signed an extension until January 4. Under the terms of his Youth Loan Alfie can still play for Brentford’s Development Squad when required.
Northampton Town are set to extend the loan of Brentford winger Stuart Dallas for another month
. The 22-year-old has scored two goals in five games for the League Two club since arriving at Sixfields at the beginning of October. However, Dallas' deal is due to expire after Saturday's trip to Plymouth Argyle, who have Bees striker Paul Hayes on their books. But Brentford boss Uwe Rosler is happy for the Northern Irishman to remain at Northampton to continue his development. He said: "We had a conversation with Aidy Boothroyd, who is very happy with him. Stuart's loan is up on November 2, but he will most likely stay on for another month to get regular playing time in league football. He's doing very well. It's a similar situation to when Jake Reeves went to AFC Wimbledon last year, then came back and played in our first team. We've more or less agreed he will stay at Northampton. We have to see our situation with injuries after the weekend."
Manager Uwe Rosler is confident though that Dallas will commit his future to Brentford. The Northern Irishman has been offered a new two-year deal at Griffin Park after showing good progress following his switch from part-timers Crusaders 18 months ago. Dallas has featured five time for the Bees this season before being loaned out to League Two Northampton Town, where he has scored three goals in five games and Rosler hopes the 22-year-old will continue his development by penning a new contract in TW8. He said: "We've had positive feedback from the player and his agent and hope he will sign. We offered him another two years, which shows how much belief we have in him. He's a great pro and has made good strides since coming to us. Stuart's hard working and level headed and hopefully he will stay with us." Dallas is due to return to Brentford after Northampton's trip to Plymouth tomorrow, although the two clubs are in talks to extend the loan for another month.
Brentford are waiting to discover whether Plymouth Argyle plan to extend the loan spell of striker Paul Hayes beyond the weekend
. The former Charlton frontman has failed to find the net in six outings for the Pilgrims, with his one-month deal due to expire after Saturday's clash with Northampton Town. Uwe Rosler is willing to let the 30-year-old remain at Home Park, but is waiting for an answer from the League Two club. He said: "We spoke to his agent earlier this week, who is in the process of finding out what Plymouth Argyle want to do. We're expecting an answer by the end of the week, then we will see what the outcome is. It's important for Paul at this stage of his career to be playing regular football, which is difficult for him at Brentford." Hayes has featured just once for Brentford this season - in the Capital One Cup win against Dagenham in August - and is way down the pecking order at Griffin Park.
