Everton forward David Henen will remain with Fleetwood Town for the remainder of the season.


The 19-year-old Belgian's loan was due to expire after Saturday's 2-0 victory over Bury.
Henen missed the game with an ankle injury, for which he is undergoing treatment at Goodison Park.
But he is expected to return to Highbury within the next fortnight, much to the joy of Fleetwood's manager.
Steven Pressley made pace a priority when he took charge at Highbury, something Henen has certainly provided.
"I'm delighted," said the Fleetwood manager.
"I think it's a really important signing for us.
"He fits the profile, the DNA we're looking for.
"He's a young hungry players, he's already impressed during his time with us.
"He's got that all important speed I've talked about.
"We've been really impressed with him, not just with his play but with his character."
Everton are understood to have been impressed with Fleetwood's training setup and style of play.
But Pressley understands the club's desire to protect their asset, a summer capture from Olympiakos.
"He picked up an injury at Shrewsbury," explained Pressley.
"The owner clubs are very protective of their players, we respect that.
"Once he's recovered from injury it'll be great to see him back."
