Macclesfield have extended rookie Everton defender Toto Nsiala's loan spell for a third month at Moss Rose.
The player initially joined the Silkmen in early October and has gone on to make 11 appearances so far, scoring once in the FA Cup.
Manager Gary Simpson said: "It's great news we've been able to extend the deal for a further month.
"Its also a big vote of confidence for the football club given Everton are happy for him to stay. So we must be doing something right.
"He's a likeable character who's got bags of enthusiasm and he's fitting in really well at the club. I believe he's growing stronger with each game and I'm confident there is more to come as he's still a young lad and learning all the time."
