Motherwell have extended the loan of Fraser Kerr from Birmingham City until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old defender has impressed for Stuart McCall's side this campaign, making 14 appearances at the back.
"I am pleased to get Fraser here for another few months," McCall told Motherwell's official website.
"He will provide good competition for the lads at the back, particularly with Steven Saunders returning to the fold too.
"He’s young and still learning the game and we’ve asked him to fill in all over the place and he has done well for himself.
"If we want to finish in the top six and push for European places, then everyone will have a role to play and Fraser will be a big part in that."
