Huddersfield have extended teenage Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston's loan spell until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old signed for an initial month last week in time to make a goalscoring debut in Saturday's 1-0 win at Yeovil.
Terriers manager Lee Clark has been impressed by the youngster during his short time at the Galpharm Stadium and has moved to complete a longer deal.
"We originally wanted to bring Nathan in on a longer-term loan, but paperwork takes time and we had to ensure he was available for the Yeovil game, so we initially put it through for a month," he told the club's official website.
"There is still more to come from him, without a doubt. He only had a couple of sessions with the rest of the team ahead of Yeovil, but I felt he bedded in really well.
"He worked hard, formed a good partnership with Jordan Rhodes and took his goal well. He gives us a good option in attack."
