Fulham full back Jon Harley has extended his loan stay at West Ham by a further two months.

Harley has been told he has no future at Fulham, so joined West Ham in mid-January in the hope of proving himself worthy of a permanent deal.

Hammers chief Alan Pardew has been impressed with Harley’s efforts over the last four weeks and felt it wise to secure him on a longer deal.

“John has signed for two more months which I think is good for West Ham fans because he has played well,” Pardew told the club’s website.

Pardew has thrown down the gauntlet to the former Chelsea full back.

“It is two more months for him to see if he can secure a permanent deal,” added Pardew
