Northampton Town have extended the loan of winger Mitchell Cole by a further month.
The Southend youngster has impressed during his first month with the club and now The Cobblers have secured his services for another four-week spell.
The Championship side, though, have insisted on an immediate recall clause as manager Steve Tilson may require his return.
"By all accounts Mitchell is doing well for Northampton," said Tilson.
"John Gorman asked if he could keep him for another month and at the moment it's right for him to stay."
