James Wallace has extended his loan spell at Shrewsbury by a month, despite playing only 20 minutes since arriving from Everton.
Wallace joined the Shrews at the beginning of November, but was sent off just 20 minutes into his debut at Dagenham.
However, manager Graham Turner has seen enough of the England Under-20 international to secure his services through until the new year, although he is waiting to discover whether or not Everton will grant Wallace permission to play for Shrewsbury in their FA Cup clash with Rotherham on Saturday.
Turner told the club's official website: "We've obviously only seen 20 minutes of him. He looks as though he can play the games when you see him in training. The test will be when he starts playing again.
"He's a lad who enjoys training and why wouldn't you? It's a great occupation. It looks as though he's going to make the most of his career.
"Everton are thinking about whether he will be allowed to play or not. We'll take it from there. We want to know who is going to be available by Thursday so we can work on the team structure."
