MK Dons have extended the loan of young West Ham United defender Jordan Spence until 4 January.
The 23-year-old's current deal expired after last weekend's defeat to Bradford City.
Spence joined the League One play-off chasers in October and has been a key figure in the back four ever since.
Speaking to the club's official website, Dons manager Karl Robinson said that he was happy to be keeping Spence at the club for the hectic Christmas period:
“First of all we’re thankful to West Ham United and Sam Allardyce for allowing us to keep him until the New Year.
“He’s done wonderfully well since signing for us and we’re very fortunate to have him until January.
"He is a typical MK Dons centre-back and they are hard to find."
