Carlo Nash has revealed that he is hoping to secure a permanent move to Championship high-flyers Stoke.
The keeper is currently on loan at the Britannia Stadium from Wigan and has featured in the Potters last eight games.
With Tony Pulis' side currently on the verge of securing promotion to the Premier League, Nash admits that he has established an affinity with the club since joining them at the beginning of March.
"You cannot play for a club and fail to become attached, especially when there's so much at stake," he told the Sentinel.
"It's a great feeling to have that chance of winning promotion, and now we just have to make sure we don't fall at the last hurdle."
The veteran stopper also indicated that he would be willing to discuss a potential move with Pulis, should the manager wish to retain his services.
"That's obviously a decision for the club and the manager, but I know I don't want to be in the same situation I was at Wigan again because I feel I still have something to offer."
Nash initially joined the Latics on an emergency loan deal in February 2007, before making the switch from Preston permanent last summer.
However, he is yet to make an appearance for the Premier League side and would not appear to feature in Steve Bruce's future plans.
