Talbot says that he is delighted the Premiership sides have agreed to extened their loan deals for a further month.
"I would like to place on record my appreciation to Birmingham City and Tottenham Hotspur for agreeing to extend the loans of Neil Kilkenny and Mark Hughes," Talbot told the club's website.
