FC Utrecht midfielder Gianluca Nijholt could soon sign a contract extension at Stadion Galgenwaard.
The 19-year-old has broken into coach Ton du Chatinier's side this campaign after spending two seasons with the fifth-placed Eredivisie outfit.
Nijholt scored an excellent free-kick in Sunday's 3-1 victory over NAC Breda to underline his potential with his hometown side.
He now hopes that an agreement with Utrecht regarding a new deal is not too far away after holding discussions.
Nijholt said: "The club and I have been talking for some time and I believe we will soon come to an agreement. But I do not want to jinx things."
