Andriy Shevchenko has revealed he would like to stay at AC Milan beyond the end of the season.
The Ukraine international is currently on a season-long loan at Milan from Chelsea after failing to impress at Stamford Bridge.
Shevchenko has endured a difficult return to Milan, struggling to hold down a regular place in Carlo Ancelotti's side and starting just two games in Serie A.
The 32-year-old has shown glimpses of his old form in recent weeks with a goal against England for Ukraine and then he created Milan's second goal in the 2-0 win over Lecce on Sunday.
Shevchenko admits he is not looking to return to Chelsea and hopes to secure a permanent move to Milan.
"I'm hoping to stay at Milan next year but no decision has been taken yet," said Shevchenko.
"I am on good form after a goal at Wembley for the Ukraine and an assist yesterday for Milan.
"I want to continue on this road and to give my best up until the end of the season.
"I want to be better for the fans and if they are pleased with me then that makes me happy."
