The promising striker moved to Boundary Park at the end of last month and has netted twice for The Latics.
Zola Makongo is not yet involved at first-team level with Premiership outfit Newcastle and is happy to accrue experience in the Second Division.
The 18-year-old is enjoying life with The Latics and wants to prolong his spell with Iain Dowie's side.
"I'm getting great experience here and I hope to be at Oldham for longer than a month," said Zola Makongo.
"But when I get back I'll be fighting for a first-team place at Newcastle."
