Derby County midfielder Paul Green is hoping to hold talks with the club regarding a new contract to stay beyond the end of this season.
Green's present deal expires in the summer and there had recently been reports that the 28-year-old could be sold during the January transfer window.
However, after returning to the Derby side after seven months out with a knee injury, Green is eager to stay at Pride Park for the long term.
"I definitely want to stay," the Republic of Ireland international told the Derby Evening Telegraph.
"My family is settled down here, I'm enjoying my football again and it's a great club to be at.
"Hopefully, we'll start talking at some point but I'm not too sure what's happening.
"If they do offer me something, I'll look at it and see what happens. First and foremost, though, I just need to focus on my performances and doing well for the team.
"The fan base here is second to none. We had a full house against Leeds on Boxing Day and nearly 30,000 again for the West Ham match. You don't see that too often in the Championship."
