Crewe are hoping to agree a deal to see Liverpool youngster Danny O'Donnell return to the club next season.
O'Donnell has spent the whole season on loan at Crewe after being allowed to leave Anfield in a bid to gain some valuable first-team experience.
The 21-year-old has impressed at Gresty Road and Crewe chief Dario Gradi would like to see the defender return to the club next season.
"I am trying to speak to Liverpool as I'm not sure what the situation is with him, but we would feel happy to have Danny back here," Gradi told the Sentinel.
It remains to be seen if Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez would be willing to let O'Donnell return to Crewe next season on a loan or permanent basis.
