Leeds Carnegie have confirmed that former England hooker Andy Titterrell has agreed to remain at Headingley until the end of the current campaign.
Titterrell originally joined the Guinness Premiership outfit on a three-month contract, however he will now stay until the end of the season with a view to a longer deal.
Leeds director of rugby Andy Key said: "We are delighted to have agreed an extension with Andy.
"He has fitted in extremely well since arriving at the club and has been able to put his vast experience to good use with us.
"He has been in great form over the last four games and hopefully he can continue that on Sunday."
The 29-year-old Titterrell, who was capped five times by England, hopes he can continue to repay the faith Leeds have put in him.
"The coaching staff have been great with me since I arrived at the club and I have settled in well with the other guys," he said.
"Leeds Carnegie have given me an opportunity to play in the Guinness Premiership and hopefully I have been able to reward that faith with my performances in recent weeks. It is a massive privilege to continue playing here.
"I am focused on Sunday's game against Wasps now and hopefully building on last week's win at Sale."
