Scunthorpe have extended the loan spell of George Friend for a further month, but have allowed fellow defender Bondz N'Gala to return to West Ham.
Wolves left-back Friend has made two starts during his time with the Iron in the defeats to Blackpool and Watford and could now make his home debut against Leicester at the weekend.
The 22-year-old has already had spells at Millwall and Southend United this term and was wanted for a second month at Roots Hall but the Shrimpers' financial situation prompted the Football League to put a block on the extension.
Meanwhile, N'Gala has returned to London after making substitute appearances for the Iron against the Seasiders and Hornets.
The 20-year-old has previously had spells at Weymouth and MK Dons.
