Ben Gordon is hoping Chelsea will reach an agreement to allow him to stay at Kilmarnock for the rest of the season.
The teenager has impressed during the first half of the campaign at Rugby Park and has made 19 appearances in all competitions for Killie.
The left-back's current deal expires next week and Gordon is eager to continue playing regular first-team football in the SPL.
Gordon said: "I spoke to Chelsea and Chelsea have spoken to Kilmarnock, and the gaffer (Mixu Paatelainen) said that he was willing to sign me until the end of the season.
"So it's just whether Kilmarnock and Chelsea can agree something. I hope they can because I've really enjoyed it up here so far.
"Now I have been here and played football it's all I want to do, stay here until the end of the season and hopefully get as high up the table as we can.
"Hopefully it's going to get sorted in the next two or three days."
Kilmarnock will move into fourth place in the SPL if they beat Inverness in the Highlands on Wednesday and Gordon admits the move north has exceeded his expectations.
He added: "I was at Tranmere last year but only for a month so it is my first time playing football week in, week out.
"It's a good learning process training every day with the first team, because at Chelsea I'm with the reserves. Preparing for games and tactics, I have learnt so much."
