Blackpool star Gary Taylor-Fletcher is keen to win a new deal to extend his stay at Bloomfield Road.

Taylor-Fletcher has established himself as a key member of the Blackpool side since arriving from Huddersfield in 2007.

The 27-year-old's current contract expires at the end of the season, but he would love to secure an extension.

"I've got a one-year option on my current contract for next year and we will see how it goes," Taylor-Fletcher told skysports.com at an event promoting EA SPORTS FIFA 11 Ultimate Team.

"I am in my final year of my contract and I would love another year here.

"I want to help Blackpool stay in the Premier League and hopefully I will be playing with Blackpool in the Premier League again next season."

Taylor-Fletcher is one of a number of players, including Matt Gilks and David Vaughan, who are out of contract in the summer, and the forward admits it is important Blackpool keep hold of the nucleus of their squad.

"There are a number of the lads who are also out of contract in the summer and I hope they all stay," added Taylor-Fletcher.

"It is very important to keep the squad together as some of those players are the heart and soul of the club.

"It is part and parcel of football that players are coming into the last few months of their contracts and if players move on I am sure we will be able to replace them, but hopefully we can keep hold of them and build around them."
