Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams has revealed he wants to extend his stay with the U's, who are keen to secure the stopper's services.
Williams, 29, is out of contract at the end of the season but says he has no intention of leaving the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
"It's my third season at Colchester and I've always enjoyed myself here," he told the Daily Gazette. "I've spoken to the manager and expressed my desire to speak with him about my contract."
Manager John Ward is keen to keep Williams and the stopper says he is waiting to meet with both Ward and the chairman Robbie Cowling.
"He's agreed and said that he'll come back to me, so that's where it stands at the moment."
"The plan is to stay at Colchester and I now need to speak to the manager and the chairman."
