Danny Graham will wait until the end of the season before deciding whether to turn his loan spell at Carlisle United into a permanent stay.
The Middlesbrough striker has scored three goals in six starts for The Cumbrians and would consider staying at Brunton Park.
However, Graham, who is out of contract at the Riverside Stadium in July, is remaining coy on his future beyond the end of the season.
"Everything is still up in the air but at the minute I just want to concentrate on football, play as many games as I can, score as many goals as I can for Carlisle and see how far we go," he told the Carlisle News & Star.
"We'll see what happens at the end of the season."
Graham scored twice in the 5-0 rout of Gillingham last weekend - a result which took Neil McDonald's men to within six points of the play-off picture.
