Crewe Alexandra: Loanee Chuks Aneke set to extend his stay at Gresty Road
CREWE are looking to extend Chuks Aneke's stay from Arsenal for at least another month as they continue to put faith in their loan boys.
Aneke, aged 19, has largely impressed for the Alex this season as he continues to find his feet – and best position – in senior football.
The youngster, pictured right, has scored four goals and clocked up three assists as he has largely been used in an attacking midfield role playing just off a central striker. He was left out of the team for a 3-1 win at Preston and made way at half-time as the Railwaymen beat Bury 1-0 last time out.
But he is still viewed as a vital member of the squad as Crewe continue their rise up League One.

Assistant manager Neil Baker said: "It's a youth loan with Chuks so we can extend it outside of the transfer window and that's what we'll look to do this week.
"The loan players we have now, Chuks, Lauri Dalla Valle and Bradden Inman, have done very well for us and they add a good deal to our squad."
Inman, aged 21, is on loan from Newcastle United until January 2, while Dalla Valle, also aged 21, has been borrowed from Fulham until January 8.
Inman scored his second goal in two games in the victory over Bury, the first time Crewe have won three back-to-back in the league since they closed in on promotion in March.
Manager Steve Davis said: "Brad was our best player on the day against Bury.
"He is a match winner because we know he can score goals. He had scored seven in eight games for Newcastle's under-21s before coming here and now has two in two games for us.
"That quality is why we were keen to bring him here."
The result lifts the Alex to 11th in the table, four points off the last play-off place and 12 points clear of the relegation zone.
They managed it without influential defensive midfielder Abdul Osman (knee) who is it hoped will be available for the home game against Bournemouth this Saturday.
The injury is not connected to a knee problem which kept the 25-year-old sidelined for the large part of October.
Defender Kelvin Mellor, aged 21, is also back in full training after he strained a knee in a 1-0 win over Doncaster back on November 6.
