Norwich City have extended Newcastle United goalkeeper Fraser Forster's loan at Carrow Road until January 2.

The 21-year-old made his City debut last weekend in the 2-0 win over Hartlepool United at Victoria Park, following his switch the day before.

City boss Paul Lambert was impressed with Forster's debut on Saturday and told the club's official website: "He did well coming in on Saturday at very short notice and showed he is a very capable goalkeeper. We needed cover due to Ben Alnwick's injury and we have now extended the loan until January, giving us more options between the sticks."
