ON-LOAN West Ham midfielder George Moncur says it will be his decision if extends his stay at AFC Wimbledon.
Moncur is due back at Upton Park on February 4 after joining Terry Brown’s men on a month-long loan from the Championship outfit.
But the talented teenager told the Chronicle that he has been given the power to decide his own fate and he intends to lengthen his spell at Kingsmeadow.
“Yeah if I do well and they want me I will probably stay,” explained the England Under-19 international. “West Ham have just told me to play and see what happens, they’ve left it [the decision to stay] up to me.”
Moncur has impressed for the Dons since his arrival, forming a promising midfield trio with Sammy Moore and fellow AFC Wimbledon new-boy Billy Knott .
He said: “It’s been good since I came here. I’m enjoying it and playing well and we’re getting the points so I just hope we can keep it going.
“I like getting the ball from the back but in this position I have to spread wide when the full-backs get the ball. It’s not my natural thing but I will get used to it.”
And the youngster, who signed his first professional contract at West Ham in September 2010, says he is flourishing under the guidance of his new boss.
He added: "I’ve been getting on great with Terry. He’s a good manager and tells the players to get on the ball and he’s given encouraging words.
“It’s a different style of football to the reserve games so hopefully I can develop more in these games. It’s great to have good players around you.”
