Ross County defender Paul Quinn has revealed he is determined to earn a longer-term deal with the Staggies.
The 29-year-old penned a contract until the end of the season after ending his Doncaster deal by mutual consent.
"It was important I started to get people talking about me again, doing well, and that's gone OK," said Quinn.
"I've managed to play well and as long as I keep working hard and getting in the team, hopefully I'll have a longer-term future here."
County sit bottom of the Scottish Premiership on eight points, level with St Mirren.
The Staggies have, however, enjoyed an upturn in fortunes under manager Jim McIntyre and his assistant Billy Dodds.

They picked up an impressive 3-0 win away at Kilmarnock last time out and former Motherwell and Cardiff player Quinn admits the international break came at the worst possible time.
"Getting that good win away from home, and the clean sheet, was obviously important," he told BBC Scotland.
"We've had the international break and I'd have preferred just to get into the game than sitting here waiting, but that's football.
"The confidence we've taken from the Kilmarnock result means we are itching to get back on the pitch. There's not many teams sitting at the bottom of league tables that cannot wait to get on the grass.
"I've been there and sometimes you're going on in hope rather than thinking 'we're going to go and do something in a game,' but we're working hard and every day that we're talking about games, we're talking about going and making a difference, that's the feeling we've got about the squad just now.
"That's what the manager and Doddsy are putting in us, they're putting their faith but also their belief in us, their belief in us to be positive."
The Staggies are back in action this weekend away to St Johnstone on Saturday.
