DaMarcus Beasley is hoping Manchester City take up the option to keep him on a permanent basis.
The United States international is on a season-long loan from PSV Eindhoven and has scored three goals in 18 appearances.
The winger endured a frustrating start to his City career due to injuries, but has impressed in recent games.
He scored in the 3-1 win at Fulham and struck the crossbar in Saturday's 0-0 home draw with Liverpool.
Beasley aims to keep his place in Stuart Pearce's plans for the closing games of the campaign and hopes to convince the City boss to arrange a permanent deal.
"I have another year at PSV, but City has the option to take it if they choose," Beasley told the club's official website.
"I haven't talked to anyone, so I don't know what's going to happen, but I hope something can happen.
"I'm just trying to enjoy these last few games, hopefully I'll stay in the side and help the team finish as high in the table as we can.
"The injuries I had were frustrating, I had a couple of runs in the side, but went back and forth a bit. It's good to be in the team and feel like you are part of the team, when you are contributing it feels good.
"Playing gives you confidence, I feel that when I get going with a couple of games I can get more confidence to do what I do, and get the club to change their mind and maybe keep me."
