Andre Boucaud hopes that his return to Luton Town is not a final farewell to the Notts County fans.
The midfielder arrived on loan at Meadow Lane in the summer and has been one of the team’s most consistent performers so far this term.
As a result, his parent club is now hoping to receive a fee, which will ultimately decide whether or not he returns to Nottingham.
The 28-year-old is desperate to remain at the club, after being given a second shot at Football League level.
Boucaud had previously spent six years in non-league, prior to his pre-season link up with the Magpies.
Whether it is in January or the summer, the former Peterborough man is eager to return to the club on a permanent basis.
He told Magpie Player: “The gaffer gave me an opportunity here when nobody else would so it’s only right that I come here if the deal’s still on the table.
“I’ve done what I can do on the pitch and I’ve played the majority of the games, and the team, up until this month, has been doing very well.
“I think I’ve played a part in that so hopefully something can get sorted and I can come back.
“I’m enjoying my football here and I want to stay here, but at the end of the day it’s if they can sort a deal – if they want me.
“I’ve given it my best shot and hopefully Notts still want me.”
Regardless of where his future lies, Boucaud is proud of what he has achieved in the black and white stripes.
During his five months at Meadow Lane, he started 23 games and scored one goal – a stunning hit against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.
He continued: “I came here against all the odds, coming from non-league to two leagues above and everyone thought ‘why are you signing him? He can’t even make Luton’s team’.
“That wasn’t the case and I’m just proud of myself and grateful that the gaffer gave me an opportunity to prove that.”
An announcement over the future of out-of-contract and loan players is expected on Thursday.
