Nathaniel Chalobah's loan deal to Watford has been extended until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old (pictured left), who made his England Under-21 debut in November, has impressed under Gianfranco Zola and has so far appeared 18 times in the Hornets' colours, scoring twice.

His most recent goal came in the 1-1 draw at Burnley last month, just three days after his 18th birthday.

A professional since January last year, Chalobah was an unused substitute for Chelsea back in September 2010, when just 15, and has already lifted the Premier League reserve title and the FA Youth Cup, as well as captaining the England Under-19 side.
