Swindon Town defender Scott Cuthbert says he would be "delighted" to stay at the County Ground next season.
The 23-year-old's deal expires this summer and he will not know where his future lies until a new manager is appointed at the relegated club.
He told BBC Wiltshire: "It's been different class here. If I'm going to be here next year, I'd be delighted.
"Hopefully as soon as a manager is appointed we can get an answer and start moving forward for next year."
Reserve team coach Paul Bodin is currently in temporary charge at the club following Paul Hart's dismissal in April.
Swindon finished bottom of League One this season and despite being a regular part of the side, making 43 league appearances, the centre-back has been left disappointed by his own performances.
"It's been a year of frustration. I've been trying to recapture my form of the year before. It's been a hard season," he said.
"From a personal point of view, when you've made a mistake which has cost a winning goal, you're beating yourself up about it.
"You always say you'll put mistakes to the back of your mind and you'll learn from it but it's very hard especially when you've had a very poor game.
"I suppose that's part of getting the experience that I need. It will stand me well for next year I'm sure."
