Bury defender Dave Buchanan is set to open contract talks with the League Two promotion chasers.
The 23-year-old's current deal expires at the end of the season and he is eager to stay with the Shakers, for whom he has already played almost 200 games.
Manager Alan Knill is hoping for a decision this week from captain Stephen Dawson, who is also out of contract in the summer, but Buchanan is confident he will then agree an extension at Gigg Lane.
"I've spoken to the manager and he said the club wants to offer me a new contract but there's nothing concrete at the minute," Buchanan told skysports.com.
"Bury have a budget and they've got to look at the finances but as long as I keep doing a job on the pitch then I'm sure we can sort a deal out."
Buchanan began his career at left midfield but was an ever-present at left-back last season as Bury were knocked out of the play-off semi-finals.
The Shakers are in the promotion race again this season, with Buchanan having switched to right-back to cover for the injured Paul Scott.
And the former Northern Ireland Under-21 international has adapted so well to his new role that he is now keeping the fit-again Scott on the bench.
"I'm one of those players that can do a number of jobs in the team and that's a good thing for myself," Buchanan added.
"If the gaffer tells me to play somewhere I'll play there and do it to the best of my ability.
"Moving to right-back has made people notice me a bit more and hopefully that'll help me get a new contract.
"I haven't played at left-back for a long time but the team's more important than myself. I'm learning all the time at right-back and I think I'm doing a good job.
"Everyone knows that left-back is my strongest position but as long as I'm doing well and the team's moving in the right direction then I'm happy to do that job."
