Paul Gallagher is hopeful that he will secure a permanent deal with Plymouth after resigning himself to the fact that he is not wanted at Blackburn.
The Scottish striker moved to Home Park on loan from Rovers at the start of the season and he will stay with the Championship club until the summer.
Gallagher has enjoyed a fine campaign and admitted recently he was disappointed to learn that he had no future under Sam Allardyce at Ewood Park.
Gallagher accepts that all he can do now is focus on Plymouth before he is able to assess his options at the end of the season.
He feels the Pilgrims may want to keep him and insists he would welcome the opportunity to put pen-to-paper on a long-term contract.
"The fact is I'm not really a Blackburn player. I'm a Plymouth player because they are the only team I can help at the moment," he explained in The Sun.
"I'm sure they may like me to join them permanently so it could happen.
"I'm sitting down with my advisors at the end of the season to see where we go.
"I hope so. I like living here and so do the family."
