Footballer Rob Hall impressed once again for Birmingham City with assists for both goals in their win over Barnsley on Boxing Day.

Blues boss Lee Clark admitted that he wants to extend the Aylesbury teen’s loan from Premier League side West Ham United.

The forward, who has been utilised as a winger, teed-up both Curtis Davies’ goals in the win and his ability on the ball and productivity from set-pieces has been a major asset since his arrival at the club.

“Rob has had a terrific game all round and his delivery from set-plays is brilliant,” said Clark.

“His quality on the ball is terrific, his close control, he seems to send the defender the right way all the time in terms of trying to get them flat-footed to beat them, and he delivers the right type of cross at the right time.

“He has got a good work ethic and he’s certainly one of the players I’d like to extend on loan if possible come January. He has been very, very good for us.”

The former Grange School pupil’s loan is due to expire on January 12.
