Ghana defender Daniel Opare says he wants to stay at Standard Liege after the Belgian club tabled a contract extension over the weekend.
The 22-year-old has one more year left to run on his existing deal with the Reds.
Opare has however been impressive since the turn of the year under manager Guy Luzon and is now the first choice right back for the side.
The club now wants to retain the Ghanaian defender who endured a difficult start to his career in Belgium when he first arrived from Real Madrid in 2010.
Opare has now confirmed he is open to an extension at Liege despite hints of clubs snooping around with the surge in his club form.
“Yes, this extension was a surprise [over offer for contract extension] but it does not pose a problem for me,” he said.
“I always liked the club. Mya representative started negotiations to extend the contract while I was in Japan with Ghana.
“I know that my agent was in Liege. If the club wants to continue with me, I’m fine. I really want to continue my career here.”
