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.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
