Keiren Westwood wants to agree a new contract with Coventry City rather than seek a move to the Premier League.
The Irish goalkeeper has impressed since joining the Sky Blues from Carlisle United last summer and has been linked with a switch to the top flight.
Coventry boss Chris Coleman insisted the 24-year-old was not for sale during the January transfer window, but reports have claimed Everton, Blackburn and Wigan are all considering end-of-season bids.
Coleman is keen to improve Westwood's contract at the Ricoh Arena and the shot-stopper is happy to stay with the Championship club.
"I want to stay here and I am not banging on the door asking to leave," Westwood told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
"It is a good club and the lads are brilliant, as is the gaffer and coaching staff, so if we can agree something that will be fantastic and a great way to end the season.
"I look around the dressing room and if we can get everyone fit and add a few more players as well we could be a real underdog next year who people think have not done too well over the last few years but then kick right on and surprise a few people."
