Liverpool loanee Sergi Canos has confirmed his desire to stay at Griffin Park after his initial six-month loan deal expires on January 3.
The youngster has made 11 appearances so far this season and his quality - initially spotted by Barcelona- is finally starting to shine through.
The Spaniard scored his first senior goal in a man of the match performance against Nottingham Forest last week.

Having failed to make a first-team appearance for Liverpool since joining from the Catalan giants in 2013, Canos is eager to extend his loan deal at Brentford to continue gaining experience in England's second tier.
Canos said, according to Sky Sports: "I don't know what I'm going to do [in January] but I want to stay here.

"I want to keep playing in the Championship and hopefully at Brentford. For me, this opportunity is amazing. I'm growing a lot as a player so I want to stay."
The Klopp Effect
Since Jurgen Klopp took over at Anfield, youngsters have been flowing through the first team, with Joao Teixeira, Cameron Brannagan and Connor Randall already being given their first senior starts.
Coming through the ranks at the highly acclaimed La Masia Academy in Spain, Canos built his game around quick, intelligent passing and the ability to act quickly if a chance fell to his feet.
The 18-year-old made his first U21 start for the Liverpool youth side against Manchester United and he quickly adapted to the step up from the U18s. Predominately operating on the right, the former Spanish youth international is capable of playing in any of the attacking midfield positions or even as a false striker, similar to Roberto Firmino.
Klopp is eager to keep his young talents in the academy to develop in his philosophy so Canos' future has not been decided.
There are benefits for either choice: if Canos goes back to Anfield he will feature in training alongside the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Firmino and Adam Lallana but senior football will be hard to come by.
Whereas, if he were to stay in west London, he would gain vital experience with first team football looking increasing likely as he continues to improve.
