Third Division Hull City are to keep Bolton Wanderers striker Jon Walters for the rest of the season.
But the Tigers have parted company with their longest-serving player, defender Mike Edwards, after agreeing to pay up his contract.
Walters, 19, has scored three goals in five games since joining Hull on loan at the end of February.
Manager Peter Taylor has now agreed to extend the deal until the end of the campaign.
"It's brilliant news for us and I know Jon is pleased as well because he's enjoying his football with us," Taylor told Hull City's website
However, Edwards will start the search for a new club.
The 22-year-old, who played over 200 games for City , had a year left on his current deal.
But he has decided to take the pay-off after not getting a game at the club.
Edwards admitted it was a hard decision to make and said: "I'm gutted.
"I've been at the club for eight years I have a lot of good times and it was a very difficult decision to make, I've gone with it and I'll stick with it."
