Jake Bidwell's loan at Brentford will be extended for a third month.
The academy product joined the Bees back in August and will now remain at the League One outfit until 24 November.
The left-sided defender has also been granted permission by Everton to play in the Bees' FA Cup first round game against Borehamwood on 3 November.
Bidwell initially had a successful loan spell at Griffin Park last season and boss Uwe Rosler recruited him again this summer.
Bretnford sit ninth in the table at present, ahead of Saturday's visit of struggling Hartlepool, with Bidwell having made 11 appearances this term.
