Leeds United on loan defender Darren O`Dea would like to make a permanent switch to Elland Road.
O`Dea joined Leeds in August on a season long loan from Glasgow Celtic and he has been a regular in the Leeds side this season making 21 appearances.
The 24 year old has spent much of the last two seasons away from Glasgow, having had a spell on loan at Reading and he spent last season on loan with Ipswich Town.
O`Dea is now looking to settle with a club having only made 70 appearances with Celtic since joining them in 2005.
Speaking in the Irish independent, O`Dea said, "If something could be done in January, it certainly would appeal to me to move
'I'm at the stage of my life, and career, where I need to settle.
'I have been on loan three times now -- this my third year in a row -- and with a wife and kid, I want to get a permanent base. You want to get a home, not a house that you rent.
'Staying with Leeds is certainly attractive because they, like Celtic, are a massive club. Hopefully something will happen, if not now then in the summer.'
O`Dea is currently the senior player in the Leeds defence at 24, with Lees (21), White (20) and Thompson (19) playing in the game at Arsenal.
O`Dea has started the last four games for Leeds since suffering a head injury that forced him to miss over a month.
The Republic of Ireland international partnered Tom Lees in the Leeds defence for the first time since the end of October at Arsenal on Monday.
The pair were beginning to forge a good partnership at the heart of the Leeds defence before O`Dea suffered his head injury in the game at Birmingham.
With fellow central defenders Patrick Kisnorbo, Leigh Bromby and Andy O`Brien all currently out of the side the duo look set to continue in the game at Crystal Palace on Saturday when the side look to make it back to back championship wins for the first time since the beginning of December.
