Rafael Schmitz has expressed his desire to secure a permanent move to Birmingham.
The Brazilian joined Blues on a season-long loan from Lille over the summer and is happy with the way he has settled in.
The versatile defender accepts that it was difficult to adapt to the English game but is now keen to extend his stay at St Andrews.
Schmitz has forced his way into the side after recovering from an Achilles problem and believes he can help Birmingham's young players pull clear of trouble.
He said: "The opportunity arose to come to Birmingham and I have been really happy since I arrived.
"The football is different to what I was used to in Brazil and France, more direct and aggressive, but I am starting to find my feet now.
"I have given everything to the cause to try and help the team gain the right results and I will try and help the younger players if I can.
"Would I like to move permanently? Of course. I have been made to feel really welcome. I would be very happy to stay here if something could be sorted out."
