Steve Holland is keen to extend Dean Morgan's loan deal at Crewe until the end of the season.
The winger has been in impressive form since his arrival from Luton and played a key role in the Railwaymen's 3-0 win over fellow strugglers Gillingham on Saturday, scoring one and laying on the other two.
It is performances such as this which have seen him quickly win the affections of the Gresty Road faithful and first-team coach Holland is hopeful that there will be many more dazzling displays to come.
However, with his current deal due to expire on 3rd April, the Crewe boss admits that Luton's current predicament towards the foot of the table, along with the players wishes and the financial implications of any agreement could yet scupper any hopes of Morgan remaining with the club.
"We are learning about our loan players all the time," Holland told Crewe's official website.
"Dean joined us on the Saturday before the (Nottingham) Forest game (on 8th March) and played the last 25 minutes, he then trained on the Monday before facing Port Vale.
"He played on the wing against Forest and then through the middle against Port Vale. We played him on the left hand side of an attacking three on Saturday and he produced a match-winning performance. He created the first goal for Tom (Pope), had a hand in the second and then scored the third himself.
"That was the best he has done since he has been here and that wasn't a great surprise to us, because we have had a bit of time to work with him on a few things during the week.
"If he can produce performances like that then he would be more than a useful acquisition for us between now and the end of the season. In relation to extending his loan deal, a lot would depend on his club, and of course Dean himself.
"There is also the financial implications because a player like Dean is out of our wage bracket. We don't have a bottomless pit here and it is something you have to consider when you are loaning players in. We cannot afford to just collect players; they have to make a difference to us.
"Dean did that and more on Saturday. He showed some real talent and would be a good player to have on board here.
"We knew when we agreed to take him on loan what he could offer us going forward. Although his goal scoring record is not prolific, he has played a lot of games at this level and higher, so we knew he wouldn't be fazed.
"We knew a player of Dean's calibre and experience would settle in and play almost straight away."
