Brentford FC's new loan star James Wilson wants to stay at Griffin Park for the whole season - if Gary Johnson allows him to.
The Bristol City youngster has earned rave reviews after just two appearances at centre-back for the Bees.
A solid performance at Swansea last Tuesday was followed by another commanding display against Grimsby on Saturday, showing maturity well beyond his 19 years.
He even marked his home debut with a cameo role up front, setting up Charlie MacDonald for Brentford's first goal with a mazy dribble and slide-rule pass.
The Welsh U19 international has yet to force his way into the first team at Ashton Gate, which could play in Brentford's favour if they wish to extend his month-long stay at Griffin Park.
Wilson said: "I'm not sure if there is an option to extend the loan beyond a month, but if I'm playing regularly I'd be well up for staying longer.
"The opportunity to come here came quite late in pre-season, so it was a bit of a surprise.
"I was looking to go out on loan this season anyway, and this is a higher standard than I was expecting to play."
Wilson seemed as surprised as anyone about his assist for Saturday's first goal, and while he doesn't fear nosebleeds from playing on the edge of his opponent's box, his focus is on his defensive responsibilities.
He said: "I wouldn't say I do little slalom dribbles like that all the time. I just saw the space and thought I would move into it.
"Speed with covering is probably the main thing I bring to the team, but I need to work on my heading, which was better today."
Wilson starred alongside fellow loanee Alan Bennett against Grimsby, meaning new signing Mark Phillips had to settle for a place on the bench and only made his debut as a late sub.
Bennett, who is on loan from Reading, also for a month, admitted he too is open to extending his stay.
The Irishman jumped at the chance of a second spell at Griffin Park when Bees boss Andy Scott came knocking the day before the start of the season, after previous loanee Leigh Mills went back to Spurs.
The highly regarded 26-year-old has been told he can leave Reading, and he clearly feels drawn to this area of West London, having just moved house to Richmond.
And Bennett admits results like the 4-0 thrashing of Grimsby make the prospect of staying with the Bees outfit all the more likely.
"It's the coaching staff, the gaffer (Scott) and Bully (Terry Bullivant) who attracted me to Brentford," he said.
"They really just wanted me back, and when someone wants you and you are a part of something, it was an easy decision.
"It's not out of the question that I might stick around for a while. We may extend the deal, maybe a season long, maybe six months.
"I've made no secret of the fact that I'd like to play as high as I can, but if I'm here and part of a winning team, it would be hard to walk away.
"I thought at Bury we should have got a draw because we started really well. But when you lose it leaves you itching for a win, so we let all our frustrations loose on Grimsby."
Bennett also hopes he can bring his new centre-back out of his shell.
He added: "James (Wilson) is a little bit quiet, but he'll come out of himself, and he's great on the ball.
"We have a good balance as he likes playing on the right, and I don't mind playing on the left, which showed with the clean sheet."
