Striker agrees contract extension until the end of campaign

The Club are delighted to announce that Watford have agreed to extend the loan deal of striker Britt Assombalonga until the end of the 2012/13 season.

The 20-year-old, who initially joined on a one-month loan deal, has been a target for a number of clubs, but will remain at Roots Hall until the end of the campaign.

The striker has scored 12 goals in 26 appearances for the Club, scoring his first goal against Northampton Town in the 3-3 draw and has formed an excellent partnership with Gavin Tomlin upfront.

Blues boss Paul Sturrock said: “We’re delighted to be keeping Britt here with us until the end of the season, it’s excellent news. 

“We would like to thank Gian Luca and everyone at Watford for allowing him to stay with us.

“The young lad is really enjoying his football and has bonded well with all the squad so it seemed right for him to remain with us considering how well he has done on the pitch.

“With us looking to get promoted it’s important we can keep players like Britt who can win us matches, so we’re thrilled he’ll be here until May.”
