Declan John has said he will 'wait and see' what happens over his future after completing a successful loan spell at Bolton Wanderers from Swansea City.
The 25-year-old has been on loan at the University of Bolton Stadium since January from the South Wales side.
During that time, he played 21 times for Ian Evatt's men and scored twice as he established himself as first choice left-back and ended the season with helping Wanderers achieve automatic promotion to League One.
His contract at the Liberty Stadium expires this summer as things stand and Wanderers boss Evatt has gone on record as hoping Bolton can sign John on a permanent basis.
John says nothing has been discussed about his future as of yet and a waiting game is now on to see what transpires in the days and weeks to come.
But after having limited game time prior to coming on loan to Wanderers earlier this year, John has been pleased to get back playing regular football once more.
He said: “The boys have been asking me if I’m going to sign over the last couple of weeks but nothing’s been talked about so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
“I think it was just the main thing for me to play games and obviously I knew the gaffer when he was at Chesterfield as well a little bit when I was there so it was just an easy choice to come and I was guaranteed minutes as well which was a good thing.
"I think I’ve done well this season and the boys have been brilliant.
“Obviously the aim when I first spoke to the gaffer was for us to get promotion and we’ve gone and done that. We’ve worked so hard, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”
At Swansea since signing for the club in 2018, John has racked up just 18 appearances in all competitions and found himself training with the club's under 23s after falling out of favour under Steve Cooper.
John admits he went through tough times at the Liberty Stadium and admits there were days he did not want to go into training.
But he is glad he has now got his playing career back on track and believes promotion to League One for Bolton is just the start for Wanderers under Evatt.
Of his Swansea struggles, he said: "It was tough, there was days where I didn’t want to go into training, I’ll be completely honest with you and not really being given a reason why.
"I think I was more than good enough to play in that team and I think I’ve shown what I can do in the games that I’ve played this season.
"I think especially in this climate now I think it’s been really tough for everyone and for this to happen, especially for me from going playing 23s football for the last six months to getting promoted with this team is brilliant.
"When I first came in, I couldn’t really believe where they were in the table because I was looking around thinking there’s some good players here.
"I’ve played with Doyler when he was at Cardiff as well and I was just thinking this can’t be right, especially for a club of this size.
"You need to be playing higher up in the leagues and this club should be playing at least Championship football and I think that’s the aim eventually and I think this is just the start.
“You’re talking 19th or 20th in the table and the club and the fans perhaps didn’t think this was going to happen six months ago and we’ve worked so hard.
"That goes from the gaffer all the way down through the staff and then to us as players to go out onto the pitch and do it.”
