Norman extends stay at Rochdale

Rochdale’s on loan goalkeeper Magnus Norman has had his deal at the Crown Oil Arena extended until the end of the season.

The 21-year old, whose been with Dale since August, was due to head back to Fulham at the end of January but that’s now not happening after a deal was agreed between the two sides to keep him in the North West.

Norman has made 11 appearances for Keith Hill’s side so far this season.

Speaking to the club’s official website the Swedish stopper said: “It makes loads of sense for me to stay. I’ve enjoyed my time here so far and I’m happy here, so I’m glad the loan has been extended so early in the window,”.

“I’ve loved being at the club, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to make my EFL debut and to have played in the Checkatrade Trophy and the Carabao Cup.

“Steve [Collis] is a great coach and I get on really well with Josh [Lillis] and Brad [Wade], too, but within that, we’re always pushing each other in training to become the best, so it’s very competitive.”
