The 25-year-old joined Leeds from the Huddersfield Giants in April and played a role in the successful defence of their Super League title.
Lunt has three years remaining on his Giants deal but he is hopeful Leeds' chief executive Gary Hetherington can work out a deal with John Smith's Stadium club.
"I would love to stay here, but we'll have to see what happens," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"I am going to enjoy this and hopefully my manager can sort something out with Gary."
Lunt appeared off the bench in Saturday's Grand Final win over Warrington and he has relished playing alongside the likes of Kevin Sinfield, Rob Burrow and Danny McGuire, who now have six titles to their name.
"I've been privileged to play with these guys week in and week out," he added. "It is a fantastic team and to get a win in a Grand Final, there's no better moment in your career.
"We've been on a rollercoaster, but we've stuck together as a unit. Along with the coaching staff, we've been in our own little bubble, we've not let anyone get to us and it has paid off.
"I don't think you could get a better bunch of players, this is special and I am going to savour the moment for the rest of my career."
