Derby boss Nigel Clough is planning talks with Aston Villa in a bid to extend Barry Bannan`s loan until the end of the season.

The Scotland under-21 midfielder has impressed in his one-month loan spell at Pride Park but that deal expires on Easter Monday and Clough is keen to keep the 19-year-old for longer.

"Barry's shown enough, either coming on or starting, and he's given us something a bit different," Clough told the Derby Evening Telegraph.

"He can fill a number of positions. If Kris Commons wasn't fit, he could go and play off the front man or go wide left or wide right or even in the centre of midfield. So he's a good little player have around," he added.

"We will be getting in touch with Villa to see if we can extend the loan."

Meanwhile Tyrone Mears' agent Willie McKay says that Marseille are ready to open talks over making the full-back's switch to France permanent, but admits there is also interest from two Spanish clubs, one Italian side and one Premier League club.
