Midfielder Damien McCrory has extended his loan spell with Port Vale from Plymouth for a second month.
The 19-year-old initially joined the League Two side on a one-month deal, but will now remain with the Valiants for an extended spell.
Pilgrims boss Paul Sturrock is keen to see McCrory gain more regular action under Micky Adams during his stint at Vale Park.
Sturrock said: "Damien was on his way back but I feel it is appropriate he spends more time up there.
"I think he has been in and out of the Port Vale team so I'm hopeful he will stake a claim and then we will see how he has benefited when he comes back to us."
And Sturrock is hoping he can send striker George Donnelly back out on loan in the near future.
The 21-year-old has just returned from a month-long loan spell at Blue Square Premier side Luton.
Sturrock said: "I would like to put George out on loan again, give him a solid one or two months where he is getting regular football.
"He will play in Tuesday's reserves game here."
