Wolves new-boy Adlene Guedioura is hoping to build on his impressive debut and earn a permanent deal at the club.
The French midfielder dazzled on his Premier League bow against Tottenham in midweek, with an all-action display helping Mick McCarthy's men to a welcome 1-0 win.
The 24-year-old is only tied down to Wolves until the end of the season, but a three-year deal with the player and his Belgian employers Charleroi has already been agreed.
Guedioura fully intends to sign that contract, but admits he must maintain the high standards he has set during his early days at Molineux if he is to fulfil that ambition.
"I have to be happy with my performance, but it's only one match and I've got to be consistent if I'm going to be a success here," he told the Express and Star.
"I don't want to sound pretentious, but I do what I can and if I can help, then great. I can't say I can be the difference in us staying up, because the difference will be us all pulling together as a team.
"But the more I play, hopefully the better I will get. I want to show the manager and the fans that I'm good enough to stay here.
"It's not my decision, because I have to show what I can do on the pitch to earn the contract."
Guedioura insists he has found the transition from Belgian football to the Premier League relatively easy to negotiate, but admits the standard in England is a lot higher than that he has grown accustomed to.
He said: "I haven't found the Premier League too difficult, but the level is much higher than the Belgian league and the tempo is very quick.
"You have to work very hard to do well, but I enjoy it because of the way everyone battles for everything."
