Liam Marrs says he would love to extend his loan spell at Boston United - but admits his future is currently out of his hands.

The Sunderland under 21s defender has been an ever-present in the Pilgrims’ line-up since arriving on loan at the start of November, his first taste of senior football.

Marrs’ loan comes to an end in January, and he admits it is then down to the Black Cats where his future lies.

“I’d like to extend it, but it’s not up to me at the end of the day,” the right back told The Standard.

“I have to go back to Sunderland and have a meeting with the managers and see what they want to do.

“I’m not sure what’s going to happen yet.”

But if was down to him, Marrs - who has made eight appearances to date - says he would jump at the chance to finish the campaign at York Street.

He added: “I’d be happy to. Any experience is great for me.

“I’m 21 and I need to start getting experience in the leagues and on my CV.

“I’m loving it (at Boston). It’s been a great experience.

“Boston as a team is great and I’m loving the challenge, it’s benefitting me so much.

“I feel as if I’m coming on a bit more every week. I’m up against more physical players and I know how to deal with that.

“The physicality is much more demanding than in the 21s.”
