Paul Pogba hopes to be given more first-team opportunities after making his debut for Manchester United last month.
The midfielder, 18, came on as a substitute in the Carling Cup tie against Leeds to help the Red Devils claim a 3-0 victory at Elland Road.
He showed glimpses of the talent that has seen him heralded as such an exciting prospect for the future, and is now keen for more action.
Having been assured he is part of Sir Alex Ferguson's plans for the season, Pogba is determined to work hard in training and impress whenever he takes to the field.
"A possible loan to a Championship club was discussed early in the season, but Sir Alex said he did not want me to leave," Pogba told the French Football Federation website.
"That makes me want to prove he was right in trusting me. I am proud of what I'm doing. I'm getting closer to the first team and I hope to progress further this season."
Reflecting on how he felt when he was brought on for Ryan Giggs at Leeds, Pogba added: "I was nervous but so happy to be among players like Carrick, Berbatov and Owen.
"It was a nice taste of the first team and made me want even more."
