The 18-year old has described his delight after sealing a loan extension with the Sky Blues until the end of the season...

Coventry City striker Adam Armstrong was 'over the moon' to seal his loan extension with the Sky Blues.

Tony Mowbray's side face top of the table Burton Albion this weekend at the Ricoh Arena as City look to go level on points with the Brewers.

Armstrong sealed a loan extension until the end of the 2015/16 season with City yesterday, a day which also saw Gael Bigirimana complete a loan deal until the end of the season as well.

The striker admitted he didn't see any reason to leave the Sky Blues and hopes to continue his good form this season.

Armstrong said: "Over the moon to get it sorted, it's been a long time coming and just delighted to make sure I'm here for the rest of the season.

"It hasn't got to me, obviously there has been a lot of rumours about it but I've just been focused on my game and making sure I'm scoring goals for the side.

"I just didn't see any reason I'd want to leave. I'm scoring goals, I like the environment and the squad, and the manager has been great to me.

"I'm scoring goals and now I can go on and get even more. I want to get a good season under my belt and hopefully we can go on and get promotion now."

Armstrong has scored 16 goals so far this season, including a hat-trick against Crewe Alexandra, which puts him at the top of the League One scoring charts.

The 18-year old continued saying he was committed to the club's cause this season and hopes to continue to improve.

He added: "I was 100% committed to the club. It's a great team to play in as there are a lot of young players but also a lot of experience and that mix is really important.

"I'm only young but I think I've learnt a lot in my time here and really enjoyed every minute of it. The amount I've learnt in a short space of time is incredible.

"I still need to learn a lot and push myself to get better. I've improved during my time here but I know I could have scored more goals this season.

"I'm still looking out for Newcastle of course and they've made some really good signings, and definitely getting better which is great to see."
