Brentford have opened talks over a new contract with utility player Nico Yennaris.
The former Arsenal man's deal with the club comes to an end at the end of the season but conversations have started between the Bees and his agent.
And the 22-year-old believes the discussions appear positive and he hopes to agree a new deal as soon as possible.
He said: “There's been a little talk. Nothing has come up yet. I keep concentrating on my football.
“The club are speaking to me now. I've been told things are positive. When the time is right and everything sorted it'll be fine.
“I'm keen to stay. It's a very good club and I just want to keep playing football.”
Yennaris barely featured in his first 18 months with the club and was given a run in the side by Lee Carsley, with great success.
Prior to the 2-1 win over Rotherham, Brentford had not won a game Yennaris had started and the Bees had produced some horror-shows in that time including the 3-0 defeat to Charlton last year.
Yennaris also spent the end of last season on loan at Wycombe but attributes his improved standing to the hard work behind the scenes.
He added: “Chances were limited for me last year but it didn't stop me. I always wanted to impress.
“I think the loan move help me and I'm grateful for what Wycombe did. I think, this season, I've shown everyone I can play.
“It doesn't help when you play your first games and the result doesn't go your way. You have to keep working hard and make sure you improve and results come later on.”
Yennaris needed time to prove to fans he could play in the Championship and he urged supporters to be patient with some of the new squad members, who joined from abroad in the summer.
He explained: “Everything takes time, especially with the new boys. Fans have to be patient with the players.
“The foreign boys have to adapt to English life, English culture and English football. It takes some people longer to settle in than others.”
