Crossley Set To Stay

On-loan goalkeeper Mark Crossley is expected to agree to extend his stay at Hillsborough until the end of the season - should Fulham give it the green light.

The 37-year-old has been a big hit with the Wednesday faithful since taking over from former loanee Brad Jones over a month ago - and with his chances at Craven Cottage limited the former Nottingham Forest man is expected to agree to an extension to his current deal which runs out in January.

Owls boss Brian Laws told the official site: 'It's in the early stages but over the last 48 hours we've talked to Mark and to Fulham about keeping him here until the end of the season. I know over recent times that the club has mostly loaned goalkeepers and I feel it's a position we need to bring some stability to.'

Crossley still has six games left on his loan deal - which ends on January 1st - but the Wednesday boss is keen to get a deal sorted to avoid a last minute rush to find a replacement.

The former Welsh international has already expressed his desire to stay at the club on a permanant basis but there is always the possibility of returning to Fulham in light of the current injury to number one Antti Niemi.

Wednesday have lost just one match since Crossley came in between the sticks - with three wins and a draw completing his five-match stint as Wednesday number one.

Fantastic if we can pull it off. Should've got him at begining of the season.

We should have got a number of players at the start of the season but didn't. If there's one thing that Laws has impressed me with the most it has to be his signings. No messing about, he just goes out and gets his men. The question is, how long will that last before Allen tightens the purse strings?

He is looking good, and defence is more confident with him behind them rather than that camel who we had for first 3 months

When will you know his fate?
