Darryl Duffy has set his sights on earning a permanent switch to Hiberian once he returns to action from a broken foot.
The Glasgow-born striker is currently on-loan from League One outfit Bristol Rovers but has yet to make his debut after suffering the injury just days after joining the SPL club.
The 26-year-old former Swansea man is continuing with his rehabilitation work and is eyeing a return to action before the end of the year.
Duffy admits he is enjoying life back in Scotland after spending just under five years plying his trade south of the border.
In an exclusive interview with skysports.com, he said: "I'm really enjoying being back in Scotland as I already knew a few of the players here before I joined, which obviously helps you settle in.
"It has been a frustrating time because when you join a new club, you don't want to be spending your time stuck in the gym and having to watch from the sidelines on a Saturday afternoon.
"We have a great bunch of lads here and that has made a big difference to me whilst I've been out.
"At the moment, I'm looking to get back fit again and getting a chance to play for this great club.
"I will be out of contract at Bristol Rovers at the end of the season and I don't see any reason why I can't move up here again on a permanent basis.
"There is a lot of football left to be played until then and it is up to me to get back into the side once I am fully fit and impress people.
"It is a big season for myself and that was another reason why it was so frustrating to pick up the injury when I did.
"If I can score a few goals and do well this season then hopefully I will get a few offers come my way in the summer."
