Hull City have extended Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala's loan spell at the KC Stadium until the end of the year.
The Spanish teenager, who initially signed on a one-month emergency loan in time to make his first appearance in the recent defeat at Cardiff, will stay with the Tigers until 1st January 2011.
Ayala has started in both Hull's league clashes since, helping them keep clean sheets, including scoring in the 2-0 home win over Derby.
The 19-year-old moved to Anfield from Sevilla in August 2007 and made his first-team debut as a substitute on the opening day of the 2009-10 season at Tottenham.
He has made a total of five Premier League appearances for Liverpool.
