Tranmere's on-loan forward Jose Baxter would like to extend his stay at Prenton Park in order to gain more first team experience.

"Who knows, hopefully I'll get it extended if the gaffer wants to," Baxter told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I'm not really match fit but the more I play the fitter I'll get. I could have come here sooner but I was wanted at Everton. I'm made up to be here."

The forward scored on his debut in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Preston, and he admits to being a little apprehensive ahead of his first Tranmere start.

"I've been worrying about it all week," he added. "Will I score or won't I score? But to get it out of the way in the first game was brilliant.

"Not scoring more myself and for us not to score more as a team was a bit disappointing because I think we deserved more from the game."
