Watford loanee Britt Assombalonga extends Southend United stay
7:01pm Thursday 13th September 2012 in Watford FC News
Watford forward Britt Assombalonga has had his loan spell at Southend United extended until January.
The forward has scored four goals in his last four games and has made six appearances for the League Two side in total do far this season.
Assombalonga stated at the weekend that he was keen to extend his stay with Paul Sturrock's side.
Assombalonga is a second-year professional who made two starts and two substitute appearances for the Hornets' first team last season.
He had two successful loan spells at Wealdstone and Braintree Town last season.
The likeable youngster scored 11 goals in 15 appearances on loan at Ryman Premier side Wealdstone, which led to a temporary move to Braintree Town of the Conference.
Assombalonga scored five goals in five games at Braintree, which prompted Hornets manager Sean Dyche to recall Assombalonga.
The forward joined Watford's Academy after impressing on one of the community trust's courses at Hertswood School.
The versatile player signed a contract extension until the summer of 2013 earlier this year.
