Knott keen to extend Wanderers stay
BILLY Knott said he's open to the idea of extending his one month loan spell with Wanderers.
The midfielder has made an instant impression on the team, with his debut display against local rivals Oxford United drawing glowing praise from the Blues fans.
He joined on a month-long youth loan from Sunderland on August 20, meaning he is eligible for the next two games against Hartlepool and Plymouth.
The 20-year-old said he hasn't spoken to manager Gareth Ainsworth about what happens after that - but hinted he hopes to stay if Wanderers can keep up their recent winning ways.
Blues are unbeaten since Knott was introduced to the side, progressing to the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and picking up four points out of six in the league.
Asked if he was keen on staying at Adams Park, Knott said: "Definitely. I've been here three games and I like being in the team. When you're winning, it's the best feeling in football.
"Every player will tell you if they're winning games they'll enjoy it and we're doing that, and getting good results. I want to continue that. When you're getting results it's easier to play football and it's enjoyable."
Knott added: "I haven't spoken to the gaffer yet but I'm taking it every day as it comes. I'm really enjoying it here at the moment.
"All the lads have been top drawer, and so has the gaffer. They said to play well, work hard for the team and I'm trying to do that."
The England U20 international is highly rated by Sunderland, who handed him his first team debut on the last day of last season.
Prior to that he enjoyed loan spells with AFC Wimbledon and Woking, being named the Dons' young player of the year in 2012.
