The Manchester United starlet has impressed at Gresty Road as cover for the injured Clayton Ince since arriving on deadline day.
Gradi is trying to extend his loan stay until the end of the current season and he will be looking into keeping him for next term.
"I will look to extend his loan with us and if we could extend that into next season then that would create the competition we are looking for with Clayton (Ince)," Gradi told the club's official website.
"I will do what is in the best interests of the lad and Manchester United because they went out of their way to help us on deadline day and we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
"He has been terrific for us, has not made any mistakes and looks assured."
Meanwhile, defensive duo Dave Brammer and Chris McCready are both expected to return to the side this weekend against Watford after injury.
