Rohan Ricketts is ready to keep his options open as to whether his stay at Wolves becomes permanent.
The speedy midfielder has made a promising impression in two cameo appearances as substitute, as well as setting up Leon Clarke's goal for the reserves at Manchester City last Monday.
Now, in the midst of a frustrating two-week break for internationals, the 22-year-old only has three first-team games remaining of his initial month's loan from Tottenham.
It's an arrangement he would like to see continued until the end of the season but, after that, who knows?
"I'd be happy to see the loan extended until the end of the season but at the moment I'm just taking things one day at a time," said Ricketts.
"I don't want to think too optimistically or too far ahead.
"Hopefully I can do what I came here to do and than I might get offered an extension.
"You never know what can happen in football, things can change so quickly.
"Not so long back I was in the first team at Tottenham but than I got injured and Simon Davies came in and I've been in the reserves.
"I might do well at Wolves, and want to stay, or maybe then Tottenham might want me as well."
Ricketts' chances of a long-term deal probably hinge very much on the future of boss Glenn Hoddle.
Should Hoddle - who took the player from Arsenal to Tottenham as a youngster --remain at Wolves next season then Ricketts could well find himself a more permanent target.
Even in this loan spell, he is desperate to repay his former mentor.
"I've got a lot of respect for Glenn because he gave me my chance at Tottenham when he didn't have to," he said.
"When someone does that you don't forget it.
"There are a lot of people at that club who wouldn't have given me a chance but Glenn and John Gorman stuck up for me and said 'we're going to give this kid an opportunity'.
"That's something I want to re-pay, as well as the fans at Wolves who have given me a very good welcome."
