The former Stoke striker has bagged six goals for the Cumbrians since joining on a short-term deal in October, helping United turn from relegation candidates to play-off contenders. His stay at Brunton Park is scheduled to end on January 12, and his form has brought him to the attention of other clubs. But the Cameroon-born forward believes the challenge of securing a top-six finish is enough to keep him in the north-west. "From Saturday, I can say it is going to take a lot for another team to make me an offer I can't refuse," Pericard told the News and Star. "I am happy here. And the challenge of starting near the bottom and getting to the play-offs is really something."
