Cardiff City midfielder Filip Kiss is hoping his loan move from Slovan Bratislava will be made permanent.
The 21-year-old joined from Slovan on a season-long loan for just under £500,000 and is hoping to stay with the Welsh outfit.
Cardiff made the Championship play-offs but were well beaten over two legs by West Ham who ran out 5-0 aggregate winners.
"I rate this season as a positive. I learned a lot in it and firmly believe I will stay longer," Kiss said.
"Cardiff are keen to keep me, an agreement with Slovan has been made too, so now we have to wait for it to be sealed once the transfer market opens.
"I hope there won't be any problem then."
The Slovakia Under 21 captain's season has been plagued with injury but he has featured heavily from the bench and feels he is getting back to full strength.
"I'm glad that I was able to appear even if it wasn't from the start. I feel very good health wise and in recent months I was in full training," Kiss added.
