Alex Osborn's loan spell at Ebbsfleet United has been extended until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old, contracted to League 2 side Dagenham & Redbridge, has been with the Fleet all season and has scored three goals in 28 appearances.

Osborn, used primarily as a right-winger by Fleet manager Steve Brown, originally arrived at Stonebridge Road on a three-month loan deal in August.

That was extended for a further three months in November and Osborn will now be with the club until May 10, meaning he could play in the Skrill South play-offs.

Meanwhile, Fleet midfielder Stacy Long is spending a second month on loan at Eastbourne Borough.

Long has made only six league starts for Ebbsfleet since re-joining the north Kent club in the summer.

And another of Brown's fringe players, winger Dominic Green, has joined fellow Skrill South side Whitehawk on loan for a month.

Long and Green's loan deals run until March 15.
