John Carew is eager to stay at Aston Villa beyond the end of his three-and-a-half-year contract.
Carew, who joined Villa from Lyon in last year's January transfer window, is tied to the club until the summer of 2010.
He has adapted well to the Premier League over the last 13 months and has played a key role in Villa's pursuit of a European spot this season.
And Carew is so happy with life that he would be willing to commit to a longer deal.
The Norwegian said: "Would I sign for longer? Absolutely, but that is down to the club and whether they are still happy with me. It has been a good season for me.
"I really love being here. The fans have been fantastic. It has been a great move for me.
"You will have periods when your form goes up and down but generally I think my form has been pretty good."
Zat Knight, meanwhile, is hoping to seize his chance after fellow defender Curtis Davies was ruled out for several months with a ruptured Achilles.
Knight lost his place to Davies in late December but is now set to be recalled to the starting line-up for next weeks's Premier League clash against Middlesbrough after coming on in the 1-1 draw at Arsenal.
The 27-year-old has sympathy for his injured team-mate but is looking forward to playing regularly for the rest of the season.
Knight said: "I feel for Curtis as I would for anyone on my side suffering an injury like that. I wish him a speedy recovery.
"I have missed nine games since I went out of the side with the suspension and obviously that has been frustrating because I am used to playing week-in and week-out.
"But I understand the circumstances because Martin Laursen has been doing well, as has Curtis.
"Now the goal for me now is to get a starting place against Middlesbrough in nine days' time and I think I put in a good enough performance at Arsenal.
"But I cannot take anything for granted. I have to continue to put in 110 per cent in training."
