Ipswich Town will take a further look at Sparta Rotterdam defender Marciano Bruma in January.
The Dutchman recently spent time on trial with the Championship club after failing to make an impression with Wiljan Vloet's side this season.
The 22-year-old was granted the chance to earn a deal in England with the East Anglian outfit, and the defender says he will be handed another chance to impress Town in the New Year.
"I can return next month to play a match," Bruma told Dutch daily Algemeeen Dagblad.
"I have only participated in some training and looked at what sort of club Ipswich Town is."
