Jesse Lingard wants to stay and fight for a place in the Manchester United first team next season, rather than go out on loan.
Lingard enjoyed a successful loan spell at Derby last term and a number of Championship clubs are keeping tabs on the midfielder in case he is made available on a temporary basis again.
But the player is hoping he will do enough on United's pre-season tour to persuade Louis van Gaal that he is worth keeping at Old Trafford.
"The manager has not said anything to me at the moment regarding my future," Lingard told Press Association Sport.
"I am looking to stay for the first couple of months and see what it's like.
"Obviously I would like to stay for the rest of the season, this is my club. This is where I want to stay."
