Ipswich Town striker Jason Scotland is hoping to earn a new contract to stay at Portman Road beyond the end of the season.
The Trinidadian, who played a key role in Town's second-half fightback in the 5-3 win at Barnsley on Saturday, is in the final season of his two-year deal.
Boss Paul Jewell gave him permission to speak to Blackpool before summer's transfer window closed but Scotland failed to agree personal terms with Ipswich's Championship rivals.
The 32-year-old is now trying to prove to Jewell that he merits a contract to be part of Ipswich's long-term plans.
"I'm just giving my all in each and every game, trying to perform well for the club and then we'll see what happens," Scotland told the East Anglian Daily Times.
"I haven't talked to the gaffer yet but I want to stay and I'm enjoying my football."
