Everton goalkeeper John Ruddy has declared he is keen to stay with Motherwell.
The young keeper has been pleased with his form and is keen to remain at Fir Park, although admits it is out of his hands.
"I would definitely be interested but there are a lot of things that need to happen between now and then," he said.
"Certainly for now I am 100% concentrating on Motherwell until January 2nd. What happens after that depends upon Everton and whatever else may come up - unfortunately it is out of my hands.
"I want to be playing on a consistent basis, with all due respect to Everton and as long as I am contracted to them I want to play for their first team. But I want to play regularly and I am not scared to move on."
