Burton Albion full-back Kevin Amankwaah is keen to stay when his deal expires in January but says he has yet to be offered an extended contract.

The 29-year-old signed a short-term deal with the Brewers in September and has impressed despite injury restricting him to just six games.

But Amankwaah told BBC Radio Derby: "I'd love to stay but there a lot of factors involved in signing for longer.

"It has to come from both parties. I'm hoping they want me to stay."

Amankwaah, who left Swindon before joining the Brewers, has played his part in Burton's charge to fifth spot in the League Two table.

And he is grateful for the opportunity to be playing regularly after a frustrating end to his career with the Robins.

"It's been good to be back involved in a winning team. We've pushed on and are on a good run even though we lost on Saturday," he said. "I'm enjoying my time here.

"Sometimes you have to get back to playing which Burton have allowed me to do.

"I didn't have regular first-team football for six months before I came here so for them to give me the chance to show what I can do, I'm really appreciative of that."
