Burnley manager Owen Coyle is hoping to secure a deal which will see Jay Rodriguez commit to the Clarets.
The teenage striker is currently in his first year as a professional, but his short-term deal will expire in the summer.
He made his Burnley debut against Bristol City on 29th December and has subsequently been loaned out to Scottish First Division side Stirling Albion in order to pick up valuable first-team experience.
He has scored twice in eight appearances for the Binos, helping to impress his manager back at Turf Moor.
"I want to keep Jay Rodriguez," Coyle told Burnley's official website.
"I think he has an opportunity and I have already been speaking to his agent and we will look to get that resolved.
"The reason Jay went to Stirling is we knew he would get regular games. He missed six weeks with a chest problem, but he has still done well and he looks as if he is improving on a regular basis.
"The two months during the summer are important to him now because I would expect him to come back bigger and stronger and hopefully ready to show that he has a part to play at this football club."
