Sheffield United have extended defender Jonathan Fortune's contract until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old arrived at Bramall Lane in the summer after being released by Charlton and although he has made only two first-team appearances, Fortune has impressed the Blades sufficiently to be offered another short-term deal.
Manager Kevin Blackwell said: "He's been plagued with injuries, but when we needed him at Barnsley he came in and did a great job."
He added: "He picked up a severe hamstring injury when we won at Bristol City and although he could do with a little more time I put him on the bench on Saturday because we were short of defensive cover.
"We've now got (Marcel) Seip, (Matt) Kilgallon and (Chris) Morgan and look strong at the back. Jon is an experienced professional and it's great to have him on board."
