Max Ehmer will remain on loan with Gillingham from QPR for the remainder of the 2014/15 season

Max Ehmer has extended his loan deal at MEMS Priestfield Stadium from Premier League side Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old centre back initially joined the club in late November on a deal until January 3, and made his debut against Port Vale in a 2-2 draw.

His deal was extended shortly after the New Year which allowed him to play up to, and including, this weekend's game against Sheffield United.

However the two clubs have now agreed an extension which will see Ehmer remain in Kent for the remaining 18 games of the season.

To date the defender has featured 11 times without scoring, most recently in the 1-1 draw with Walsall at Banks's Stadium on Sunday evening.
