Blackburn Rovers full-back Michael Gray is aiming to reclaim his place in Mark Hughes' side.
Gray has not featured for Rovers since the club's 6-2 thrashing by Arsenal at Emirates Stadium prior to Christmas.
Since then, Hughes has brought in Stephen Warnock to fill the left-back slot and it has led to suggestions Gray could move on.
The former England international attracted interest from other clubs during January's transfer window and could have more offers when the loan window reopens this week.
But, according to Rovers chairman John Williams, the 32-year-old is hoping to force his way back into Hughes' plans.
"There was interest in Michael in January, and if an opportunity comes along again during the loan period, we will put it to him," Williams told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
"But at the moment, Michael says he wants to stay and fight for his place at Rovers, and that's just what Mark Hughes wants to hear."
