Defender Aarran Racine has secured a two-year deal with Forest Green Rovers.
The 20-year-old centre-back was drafted in on an initial three-month contract in August, following injuries to Paul Green, Chris Stokes and Chris Todd.
But the former Southampton player has become a regular in Dave Hockaday's side and has impressed enough to earn a permanent deal at the New Lawn.
"He's played really well since he's come in so it was a no-brainer," Hockaday told BBC Gloucestershire.
"He's a super prospect and I'm delighted to have got him for two years."
