Millwall's on-loan striker Kevin Lisbie has set his sights on earning a permanent deal with the club after impressing this season.
The Jamaica international has made 20 appearances, scoring three goals, so far for the Lions after joining on a season-long loan from Ipswich last summer.
However, despite the 32-year-old set to become a free agent this summer, he admits he is only concentrating on firing Millwall into the Championship play-offs.
"I've not been told anything about what happens at the end of the season yet and we've got some good strikers down here now, with the gaffer using me on the left and right when needed," Lisbie told skysports.com.
"I think that the most important thing is the team and making sure we finish the season strongly.
"I'm sure that when the season is coming to a close the gaffer will sit me down and let me know the situation, but the main thing for me is that I am back playing and impressing people.
"If I can do that then it will give me more options in the summer and the more the better for me really."
The Lions boosted their chances of qualifying for the play-offs with a stunning 3-0 win at Burnley at the weekend, but Lisbie believes that their impressive home form can help them overcome the current seven-point gap they face.
He added: "The main thing for us is that we have got most of the big teams to play at home still, which is music to our ears with the home form we have this season.
"If we can take points off them and do ourselves a few favours then we will close the gap and hopefully be back in contention for the top six again."
