Blues secure Knight loan extension

Defender returns to Adams Park for the rest of the season.

7 January 2021

Josh Knight has returned to Adams Park on a loan deal until the end of the season, the club is pleased to confirm.

The 23-year-old excelled in the first 19 appearances of his loan spell from Leicester City, which has now been extended to secure the defender’s part in the club’s survival attempt in the Championship.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “It’s a badly-kept secret that we’ve been working hard to keep Josh here and I’m delighted to get it done. He’s been excellent for us ever since his first game back in September, and had to adapt to playing with a number of different centre-back partners due to injuries in recent weeks, which he’s taken in his stride and continued to be a big big player for us.

“It’s great to have Josh and Admiral Muskwe’s loans over the line this week, and once again I’m thankful to Andrew Howard for his efforts in the negotiations and to Rob, Missy and Pete Couhig for their backing of me and my team which has enabled these deals to come through.

“I’m really pleased with the quality we have in the squad and there’s still a lot of time left in this January transfer window so we’ll see what we’re able to achieve in order to make this squad as strong as it possibly can be to give us every chance of surviving at this level.”
