Tottenham have extended the loan signing of Charlton Athletic defender Paul Konchesky for an extra month.
And Spurs centre-half Chris Perry will stay at The Valley for an additional month as part of the agreement.
Both players are keen to make the moves permanent but uncertainty
over the managerial situation at White Hart Lane has put deals on hold.
The added complication may be that Charlton manager Alan Curbishley has been touted as a possible successor to Glenn Hoddle.
But Tottenham's caretaker-manager David Pleat said:
"I want to extend Paul's stay at Tottenham. We're short of cover in defence with Ledley King injured and Gary Doherty ill."
Konchesky, 22, has made only two first-team appearances for Spurs during the loan-swap arrangement which was agreed under Hoddle's management.
Konchesky, who made his full England debut earlier this year in the friendly international against Australia, made his first senior appearance for Charlton five years ago but said at the start of the season he might have to find a bigger club to further his ambitions.
Perry, the 30-year-old former Wimbledon defender who cost Spurs £4m in 1999, is happy at The Valley having failed to get into Hoddle's squad.
He said before Charlton's win at Portsmouth on Saturday: "I just want to be where I'm going to play. If that is here (at Charlton) with an extended loan, then that's great."
