Jamie Lowry has said he would be interested in staying with Crewe at the end of his month-long loan spell.
The 24-year-old midfielder has started twice for the Alex since joining on loan from Chesterfield on 25 November.
Lowry told BBC Radio Stoke: "We'll see if [Crewe manager] Steve Davis likes what he sees and I'll be more than happy to stay here.
"It's really enjoyable playing games week-in, week-out, and I'm happy to do that wherever it may come."
He added: "If he doesn't or Chesterfield want me back there, that's the way it is. I just want to play football at the end of the day."
Lowry was injured for the early part of the campaign and has not featured at first-team level for Chesterfield since 20 August.
"It's been something I've been missing for a while - coming to a Saturday and knowing that I'm going to be involved," he said.
"It's really good to get back into that regime.
"I managed 90 minutes last Saturday at Northampton. That was really pleasing for me and hopefully there's plenty more to come from me."
Lowry is likely to make his third start for the Alex when they host League Two leaders Crawley on Saturday.
