Lack of chances with Villa prompted Beye to move to the Keepmoat

Defender Habib Beye wants to stay at Doncaster Rovers for the remainder of the season.

The 34-year-old is on loan from Aston Villa until January and earned the man-of-the-match award for his debut display in the 0-0 draw with Watford.

Beye told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I think I will be here all season because I don't want to go back to Villa.

"Unless Doncaster kick me out, I will be here all season. It's a great club and I want to be part of it."

The Senegal international right-back is one of a series of loan signings made by Rovers since turning to agent Willie McKay to help them avoid relegation.

Strikers El-Hadji Diouf and Marc-Antione Fortune, goalkeeper Carl Ikeme and midfielder Herold Goulon have also arrived at the Keepmoat Stadium in recent weeks.

Beye is happy to stay in the Championship despite Doncaster's precarious position.

"There's quality in the team and I don't think it is in the right place because if you look at it Watford are not in the bottom three and we are better than them," he added.

"At the end of the day we are in the bottom three and we have to work to get out."
