Manager Steve Bruce has already indicated he would be interested in a future deal and the player appears to be open to it as well.
"I'm quite prepared for the question to be asked," he said. "Of course, there's no reason why I wouldn't look at it. They've got all the ground work to be a massive club and to go forward.
"That's what it feels like, it feels as if I need a home now in football. I'm happy coming in each day and doing my business so we'll wait and see in January or at the end of the season.
"I'm prepared for anything in football. I'm enjoying my time here, I love the lads, the manager and the fans.
"Everyone here is brilliant and I'm getting a run of games so it's so far, so good."
