Port Vale midfielder Kingsley James has had his loan spell with Hereford United extended until the end of the season.
James initially linked up with the Bulls, managed by former Vale players Martin Foyle and Andy Porter, in February but the deal has now been extended until the end of the season.
James, the former Sheffield United youth captain and defender Phil Roe were both signed by Micky Adams following his return to Vale Park.
Roe was released in the summer, but James agreed a new one-year deal and broke through to the first-team in late November. He was first-choice for four games, which included a match against his former club in the FA Cup.
However, James then lost his place and with Doug Loft and Ryan Burge looking like the first-choices in midfield, James has found his Vale chances restricted.
