Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler is hopeful of persuading Manchester United boss David Moyes into letting Nick Powell stay at the DW Stadium for the remainder of the season.
Manchester United loanee Powell signed for Wigan Athletic at the beginning of September on a season-long loan deal.
However the Premier League champions have the option of recalling the midfielder, who they signed from Crewe for £4million in June 2012, back to Old Trafford in January.
Powell has scored seven goals in 21 games for the Latics so far this season, which has reportedly attracted the attention of a host of Premier League sides.
It is thought that Moyes could decide to send Powell on loan to a fellow Premier League outfit - in hope that the 19-year-old will further improve his development.
New Wigan Athletic boss Rosler, however, is planning on persuading both Manchester United and Powell to let the Latics keep hold of the attacking midfielder.
Rosler, speaking to Sky Sports, said on Powell: "I have spoken to Manchester United, David informed me what is going on and I am fully in the picture.
"We agreed in the days to come we will have more talks and I'm very happy that we had that conversation. I know what he's thinking, I know a little what Manchester United thinks.
"In addition to that we've also contacted Nick's agent and I had a good long talk with Nick myself. We have all corners covered.
"All the talks I had were quite positive but in football you never know, we have to see now. I'm not stressed, I did what I could to speak to all parties involved and I'm keeping the dialogue up."
