Ince hoping to keep Darby

Notts County manager Paul Ince has announced that he is keen to bring young Liverpool right back Stephen Darby to the club on a longer term deal when his initial loan runs out in January. The 22 year-old has impressed since joining the club and picked up the man of the match award after the Magpies' 1-0 victory over Swindon Town last time out. It was a sweet moment for Darby, who was instrumental on loan at Swindon last season as they were defeated by Millwall in the League One play-off final, but he has said he is keen on extending his deal at Meadow Lane to the end of the season and perhaps beyond.
