Sven Goran Eriksson wants Ishmael Miller to stay with Manchester City.
West Brom are keen to make Miller's loan into a permanent deal, but Eriksson told City's website: "He's on loan until the end of the season and then he comes back. We'll see him in July for pre-season, hopefully he'll be with us, and we'll take the next step from there.
"He's doing very well and I'm pleased about it. He's been playing as a striker there and I believe he is a striker.
"We are pleased that he's doing so well, and of course for every game he plays we have a scout there watching him."
