Portsmouth striker Danny Webber has set his sights on a new contract after coming back from a long spell on the sidelines.
The former Sheffield United forward was out for almost a year after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in March 2010.
The 29-year-old has made a complete recovery and has featured in the last seven games for Pompey, but his contract is set to expire in the summer.
He has revealed that he would love to remain at Fratton Park after proving his fitness during the last four weeks.
"I'm just really delighted to be playing again because I've been out for a long time, almost a year really," Webber told skysports.com.
"I'm very confident in all the rehab I've done though and I'm just excited to play football again and get the chance to prove what I can bring to the table.
"My injury is 100% recovered now, but at the end of the day my match fitness won't be up there with the rest because I haven't done a pre-season and I've not played a lot of games over the last year.
"I will need to get a good pre-season under my belt before I am back to my best, but I'm more than sharp enough to take part in the games that I've played this season.
"There has been talk about the club offering me a new contract, but nothing has been thrashed out yet because the season hasn't finished yet.
"I think that everyone is confident that I've come back from my injury now and back to the way I was before.
"I'm sure that the contract situation will sort itself out in the next couple of weeks and that leaves me to concentrate on the final game of the season."
