Scunthorpe left back Scott Laird is hoping his loan move to Walsall will be made permanent in the summer.
The defender, who initially joined the Saddlers in August, has become a firm fans’ favourite at the Banks’s Stadium.
And the 28-year-old admits he couldn’t be happier at the club.
“I’m loving it here and I don’t want the season to end,” Laird said.
“Hopefully I can be here next season but there are a few things that have got to be sorted out.
“We have got to wait until the end of the season to see what happens with Scunthorpe. They are in a bit of turmoil at the moment, so hopefully they will come through that.
“I have got another year but I don’t think my future is there. I will have a discussion with the manager when I go back as well as the powers that be, including the chairman.
“But I’ve loved every minute here. I want to sit down with Walsall and discuss the future once I have talked to Scunthorpe.”
