The versatile defender has made a positive impression at the Memorial Stadium since arriving last month in a bid to get minutes under his belt having fully recovered from a double leg fracture.

Packwood, 20, has scooped the man-of-the-match award twice in four appearances for the Pirates, prompting Rovers boss John Ward to prolong his stay by a further two months to the maximum period permitted.

"We're delighted that Will is extending his spell with us, he's a good player and he's going to grow into a very good player," Ward told the club's official website.

The American rose through the academy ranks at St Andrew's and had made seven first-team appearances before sustaining injury in January's FA Cup third-round tie at Leeds.

Birmingham have the ability to recall Packwood at any time over the remaining period of his loan at the League Two club.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
