Gateshead have extended the contract of young midfielder Gus Mafuta until the end of the season.
Mafuta, 20, has made 15 appearances for the Heed after joining the club on a short-term deal in October.
"I'm really pleased to have my future sorted, it's stability for me and a chance to show what I can do," Mafuta told the club's website.
"I've been playing more, and the more you play, the better you are going to get. I feel I have improved."
