Cambridge United have extended the loan of Leyton Orient defender Tom Newey.Cambridge United have extended the loan of defender Tom Newey from League Two rivals Leyton Orient.
The former Leeds United player has made three starts for Steve Thompson's side since arriving for an initial four-week spell last month.
The 22-year-old has impressed the Abbey Stadium manager enough to earn an extension to his loan until March 22.
"Cambridge have been pleased with Tom and wanted him to stay on there and help their fight against relegation," Orient manager Martin Ling told the club's official website.
"We were fine for that to happen, as he wasn't featuring in our starting XI and is better off getting games."
Meanwhile, U's goalkeeper Shaun Marshall has returned from his month's loan at Conference club Stevenage Borough while Abdelhalim El Kholti has rejected the chance of a loan move to non-league neighbours Cambridge City.
