Bryan Hughes is hoping to sign a permanent contract at Accrington in the New Year following a string of impressive displays.
The 35-year-old joined the League Two club on non-contract terms at the end of October and has since been linked with the likes of Rotherham and Aldershot.
Hughes scored his second goal in as many games on Boxing Day as his stunning right-foot curler from the edge of the box 15 minutes from time gave Stanley a 2-1 victory at Morecambe.
The attacking midfielder, who played in the Premier League for Charlton, Birmingham and Hull earlier in his career, is currently ignoring speculation regarding interest from other clubs but would like his future resolved with Accrington.
He told Sky Sports: "I just want to focus on playing and getting Accrington promoted. My agent is in talks with the club and we hope to have something sorted in the next few weeks.
"I need the security of a contract and I'm sure we can get it all sorted at
His form has helped Accrington climb the League Two table with four successive victories and they're now within reach of the play-off places.
He added: "We have a good team spirit and we are playing some good football at the moment.
"We feel we can take on anyone in the division at the moment."
