Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has revealed he would be willing to sign a contract to stay at Goodison Park for the rest of his career.
Cahill is currently holding talks with the Toffees regarding an extension to his present deal, which is due to expire in two years' time.
A new four-year contract has been proposed for the Australia international and an agreement could be reached before the 30-year-old heads off to the World Cup finals.
And, after scoring 56 goals in 201 appearances since his 2004 arrival from Millwall, Cahill confirmed he would be happy to see out his playing days on Merseyside.
"The chairman and the gaffer know what I think of the club and so do the players," Cahill told the club's official website. "It is amazing!
"The chairman knows my thoughts, I will sign here for life. He knows my thoughts on what I love about this club.
"I respect everyone so much and hopefully I am here for a long time."
He added: "The likes of Tony Hibbert and Leon Osman have helped me all the way during my time at Everton. Also people like Phil Neville, he is someone I have massive respect for.
"I love this club, I have been here for six years and I have grown fonder every year.
"It is a dream come true and still to this day I enjoy going to training and I enjoy playing with these guys. We are very privileged and it is a massive honour."
