Lincoln have agreed to extend Adam Watts’ loan from Fulham until January.

The young centre back was Chris Sutton’s first signing when he took over at Lincoln, apparently made on the recommendation of his assistant, former Fulham defender Ian Pearce. Watts has played twice so far for Lincoln in a loan spell that was initially only to last a month and has kept two clean sheets in an impressive start.

A clause in the deal means that Watts is ineligible to play in the FA Cup for the Imps.
