Portsmouth midfielder Kelvin Etuhu has extended his stay by another month having been given the green light by the Football League.
Etuhu joined Pompey on a month-to-month deal in January and he has started five games in the Championship during his time at Fratton Park.
He will now spend a further few weeks on the South Coast, although the former Manchester City youngster has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury.
Manager Michael Appleton said: "Kelvin has signed for another month but he's got that hamstring injury he picked up.
"He was struggling a bit before Ipswich. It's a small tear and it isn't quite right."
Meanwhile, Appleton was happy to see David Norris return from injury in the 0-0 draw with Leeds United on Saturday and hopes Luke Varney is edging closer towards a comeback.
"David Norris coming back is a big boost because he was a key part of things before he got injured," added Appleton. "The more minutes we can get out of him the better.
"It's quite a good week for us not to have a midweek game. People like Chuck (Norris) have the chance to get a good week's training under his belt.
"If we can get Luke anywhere near the first-team training that will give us a boost."
