Aberdeen defender Max Lowe is keen to extend his loan deal at Pittodrie beyond January.
The 21-year-old has made 10 appearances for the Dons since joining on a short-term deal from Frank Lampard’s Derby County in August.
Lowe says he would be happy to remain in Scotland for the second half of the campaign if he continues to get time on the pitch.
He said: “There haven’t been any discussions yet. It will be up to all three parties to agree. Those discussions will happen when they happen but there has been nothing up to this moment in time.
“I just want to be playing games.
“There are two left backs at Derby and that would be a problem for me if I was to go back there in January.
“If I am playing then I would be happy to stay here.
“I have no problem with that.
“The club have been great with me and we just have to see what happens.”
Lowe feels he has improved as a player while working with Dons manager Derek McInnes at Pittodrie.
He said: “The gaffer and Tony Docherty have done a lot of individual work with me.
“I have done a lot of long passing and in the left-back position there is a lot of heading.
“I have done some work on that front as well.
“In the space of a month I feel I have learned a lot.
“If I am going to keep learning then I don’t see why I should go back to Derby if I can stay here.”
Lowe, meanwhile, has been hugely impressed with the start 19-year-old Dons midfielder Lewis Ferguson has made to the season.
The former Hamilton Accies player netted a late set-piece winner in Sunday’s 2-1 victory at Kilmarnock – a week after scoring the decisive goal against Rangers in the semi-final win at Hampden.
He added: “I knew him from before I came up but I didn’t realise how big he was.
“For a 19-year-old he is a big lad.
“He has just come back from a small knee injury but I played with him a couple of times before that.
“For a teenager he is so confident and composed on the ball.
“He is also a quiet lad and he just gets on with it and he is so consistent.
“He is someone everyone can look up to because he gets the job done every time he plays.”
