Derby are keen to extend Fredrik Stoor`s loan spell - providing the Fulham right-back can recover from an ankle injury.

The Swede will miss Tuesday`s game at Middlesbrough after twisting his ankle against Leicester on Saturday. The 25-year-old, who has helped the Rams keep consecutive clean sheets, is also a doubt for the final game of his month-long spell at Pride Park when QPR visit at the weekend.

"So long as Freddie is going to be fit a week after that game, we will look to extend the loan because he has settled in and done very well indeed," said Derby manager Nigel Clough.

"There are only two games after QPR so if he is going to be fit for those, we will extend the loan. If he is going to be doubtful, then there will not be much point. We would then try to pick it up after the international break in November."

Clough added: "Freddie looks very comfortable on the ball and he is quick. We needed a little bit more pace in the side and even at right-back, it helps.

"I think he has improved as each game has gone on. His ankle has reduced in size since Saturday. It was badly swollen after the Leicester game."
