Maurice Ross wants more than just a place in the Wolverhampton Wanderers team. He wants a permanent contract to become a fullyfledged member of the playing staff.
The 24-year-old defender has been on trial at Molineux and Glenn Hoddle, the Wolves manager, wrapped up the three-month loan move from Sheffield Wednesday two days ago.
A Scotland international with much potential, Ross has effectively been signed to cover for Jackie McNamara, who is injured.
"They're a great bunch of lads here and they've helped me to settle in," Ross said. "I know a few of the boys - Jackie McNamara, Kenny Miller and Colin Cameron - and, obviously, it's always easier when there's a few familiar faces.
"I'm only here because of Jackie's misfortune but, I don't think that will be a problem and I'm sure he'll welcome me to the club. The manager has been excellent with me as well, so I am looking forward to my time here."
Wolves will have the option to transfer the player's registration after the end of his loan spell in January. It is likely that the player will, indeed, secure a permanent move to Molineux.
"I've got to come and do my bit," Ross said. "It's a decent side that I'm coming into, one of the best in the Championship, so it will be difficult for me to push for a place in that team, but it's a challenge I am relishing.
"When you're playing week in week out for Rangers, you don't really think about the future too much; it's when you're not playing too often that the mind starts to wander and you begin thinking about where else you can ply your trade.
"I had heard Wolves were interested in the summer and then they opted for Jackie's experience, but I've got my chance now and if I had to choose one of the clubs in the Championship to go to, then Wolves would definitely be the one."
Ross has made 12 appearances for Scotland but is, for now, more interested in forcing his way into the Wolves team.
"My last game for Scotland was last year some time, after that I was in and out of the team at Rangers and when you're not playing regularly for your club, then it affects your international career," he said.
"But I just want to play football every Saturday and if I do that here at Wolves, I might earn a longer stay."
