Celtic defender Jos Hooiveld has admitted he would relish the chance to stay at Southampton reports

The 28-year-old Dutchman is enjoying a loan spell with the Npower Championship leaders, but his current deal is set to end in January.

Hooiveld has made a big impression since moving to the south coast from Celtic, and turned the match-winning hero for Nigel Adkins' Saints side as he grabbed the only goal of the game in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over promotion rivals West Ham.

Contracted at Celtic Park until 2013, Hooiveld struggled for first-team football under Bhoys boss Neil Lennon, who opted instead to send him out on a short-term loan away from Parkhead to gain some first-team experience.


And having now settled into life at Southampton, Hooiveld admitted he would be open to extending his stay at St Mary's.

"My future? My loan period ends on January 1, 2012. I'm very happy at this club and would like to stay longer," he told the website of his management company SEG.

"But time will tell. I hope to stay fit, hope to continue to do well with the team and we'll see!"
