Versatile midfielder Tom Hateley has indicated his desire to remain a Motherwell player beyond the summer.
The former Reading man joined the SPL outfit on a one-year deal this season and has been an integral member of the Well side that are sitting pretty in fifth in the table.
Hateley is enjoying his time at Fir Park and claims he would welcome the opportunity to open talks on a new deal to keep him in North Lanarkshire.
"If I am playing games I am happy, if the club want to talk to me I would be happy to stay," the 20-year-old told the club's official website.
"I don't know what my future is at the moment, I am happy playing every week but I haven't heard anything as yet. I do know the club has been busy in other fronts so I don't think it'll be too long until I hear either way."
Hateley's versatility has been utilised by Motherwell this term and he is having to fill in at right-back after on-loan Charlton Athletic defender Yassin Moutaouakil returned to the Valley after a five month spell.
Despite being a centre midfielder by trade, the Monaco-born man insists he is happy to play anywhere required.
"When Yassin went back to Charlton we had no other natural right-back and the gaffer asked if I could play there and I said yes," he added.
"I am happy to play there for the boys, I am happy to be in the team, as long as I am playing games."
