Cardiff City's on-loan defender Glenn Loovens stated his desire to stay at Ninian Park.Cardiff City defender Glenn Loovens has stated his desire to make his Ninian Park loan a permanent arrangement.
The Feyenoord man snubbed offers from Stoke City and Scottish Premier League side Falkirk to join The Bluebirds on a season-long loan back in the summer.
The 22-year-old has revealed he is enjoying his time with the Championship club and is hopeful he can stay with the South Wales outfit.
"I've got one more year left with Feyenoord, but I like Cardiff very much and I hope my future is here," Loovens told the Western Mail.
"I prefer the British way to the Dutch way. It's more my style of playing and I'm really enjoying it.
"The football in this country is hard, tough and quick. That's why I made the decision to come here, because it's more my style.
"I didn't know much about The Championship before I came here, but now I've seen it, I really like it.
"The quality is good. You can compare it to the highest level in Holland. The fans in Britain are also better because they sing more during games.
"I also enjoy working for (manager) Dave Jones. He's a really honest guy and I appreciate that.
"If he thinks you're good, he will say it. If he thinks you're bad, he will say it. I have to play well this season, and then see what next season brings."
