Young Hammer George Moncur is set to stay with League Two side AFC Wimbledon for the remainder of the 2011/12 season.
The 18-year-old son of former Hammer John Moncur has been with AFC since the beginning of January and his most recent arrangement, agreed back in March, saw him stay at Kingsmeadow until this week.
However the two clubs recently agreed a new deal and after spending a couple of days back with his West Ham team mates this week, Moncur will return to Wimbledon where he will remain for the duration of the current campaign.
The young Hammer, who first joined AFC in January has now made 16 appearances for the League Two club. He scored the first goal of his professional career on 24th March in a 4-0 win over Burton at Kingsmeadow.
Speaking just last week, Moncur said: "Wimbledon are similar to West Ham in that they want to play good football and it has been great for me. It is better than playing reserve team football with the fans here and the atmosphere at matches.
"It makes sense for everyone for this loan to be extended so it's likely it will."
AFC, who face promotion contenders Southend at Roots Hall this afternoon are currently 17th in League Two, some 11 points clear of the relegation zone and 18 shy of the play-off zone.
