Whittingham has won mixed reviews since arriving at Turf Moor from Villa Park, joining fellow Villa loan man Gary Cahill.
However, Cotterill is keen to extend the England Under-21 international's stay, praising his continued progression.
"I've had a chat with Aston Villa and I'd like to leave it at that," Cotterill told the club website. "We'll see where we go from there.
"When he first came he might have been a little bit low on confidence because he hadn't played a lot of football.
"He's got better as time has gone on.
"I'm still trying to sort out what quite is his best position and I think I might have now come to that conclusion.
"He's a great lad, I'd have him here tomorrow."
