Scunthorpe United goalkeeper Josh Lillis admits he would be open to extending his loan deal at Rochdale in the New Year.
Lillis has spent the first half of the season on loan at Rochdale and has made 22 appearances during his time at Spotland.
He has recently been back at parent club Scunthorpe to receive treatment on a hamstring injury and is close to returning to action.
The 23-year-old is unsure what his future holds, but Lillis will not rule out prolonging his time with Keith Hill's side beyond January.
"There's not been much talk at the moment because we're concentrating on recovering from the injury but initially, in my first six months, there was no recall clause," Lillis told the club's official website.
"I think if the stay was to be extended there would be a 24-hour recall clause now if Ian Baraclough let me go there again. We'll see in January though.
"I've just come back to Scunthorpe for treatment because it's down the road from me and it's the best thing to do. The club want to make sure I come back from the injury right and under their care.
"It's my right hamstring and I think I've torn a few fibres in there. It's not a major tear or anything so hopefully I can be back within the next couple of weeks."
