On-loan Leeds United defender Darren O'Dea has reiterated his hope that he can secure a permanent contract at Elland Road.
The Republic of Ireland international, who has made 36 appearances this term, joined Leeds on a season-long loan from Celtic in August.
Following a run of three straight defeats, Leeds' play-off hopes are all-but over and manager Neil Warnock is already turning his thoughts to next season.
Warnock is keen to implement an overhaul of his squad in the summer and O'Dea is hopeful he can perform well enough with four games remaining to seal his future at the club.
O'Dea told the club's official website: "The manager's already started planning for next season so everybody has everything to play for.
"There might not be much for us there in terms of the league, but our careers and futures at this club are there to play for.
"I hope I can stay, but as I've said there's only one man who will make the decision. I'm sure he'll have a rough idea about what he wants to do, but I don't see anywhere better to be than here."
