JAKE Hesketh says he would love to extend his loan deal and stay with the Brewers.

The 22-year-old is loan from Southampton until January and is happy at the Pirelli Stadium

He said: “I want to stay. I’m playing football and enjoying myself. That’s down to the club here, the management and if they want me to stay. I’s their decision at the end of the day.

“The experience of playing league football is a major benefit for me.”

Hesketh has contributed two quality goals against Portsmouth and Nottingham Forest and  wants to add more to his Brewers tally.

He said: “We have quite a few players in the midfield positions so adding goals and assists is what I want to do. Having got the first two goals, I just want to keep going and get more and more.”

Hesketh admits the Brewers were below par in the FA Cup defeat at Scunthorpe but that they showed more of what the team is about in beating Coventry a week later.

“We all knew in ourselves that the Scunthorpe performance wasn’t good enough. Looking back, it was a weird one as we could have won regardless of how we played. But we needed that kick up the backside afterwards and we responded against Coventry.”

Now it’s on to Blackpool on Saturday and then at home to Charlton on Tuesday.

Hesketh said: “They are the teams that we want to get in amongst who are four or five points above us. If we beat them, we are in touching distance of the play-off places which is where we want to be.”
