The 21-year-old joined the Third Division club on an initial month's loan in early August and Dale boss Alan Buckley was keen to keep the youngster in his Spotland squad.
"I spoke with Kevin (Keegan) and Chris Shuker this morning and we've agreed to an extension of his loan by another two months," Buckley told the club's official website.
"Man City have been very good about everything and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them.
"Having Chris at the club gives us good options on both sides and we are very pleased he's agreed to stay with us."
Despite Shuker's loan extension, the striker is to serve a three-match ban for a red card he received in last month's 2-2 draw against Cambridge United, starting with this Saturday's trip to high-flying York City.
