Manchester United's Jonathan Spector is still joining Blackburn Rovers on loan, despite a delay to the move.
The young American defender had been set to move for the rest of the season to Ewood Park.
However, United's current injury problems mean he has had to stay at Old Trafford for another week at least.
"I have spoken with Sir Alex and, in view of United's concerns over a couple of injuries, Jonathan is to stay there for a little longer," said Rovers
boss Mark Hughes.
"He will, however, be joining us sometime in the near future."
Spector was on the United bench for their 2-0 win at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
