Alex Cuthbert insists he is happy to ply his trade at Cardiff Blues.
I'm still young, in only my second season, so I feel quite privileged to hear the Blues say keeping me is a priority
The strapping Welsh wing is out of contract at the end of the season and there are fears he could move abroad.
But the Blues have made tying Cuthbert down to a long-term contract a priority and he remains positive about his future in the Welsh capital.
Asked if it were his preference to stay at the Blues Cuthbert said: "Yes, I think so. I'm still developing and still have so much to learn.
"I'm still young, in only my second season, so I feel quite privileged to hear the Blues say keeping me is a priority. I'm grateful to them for giving me a chance and feel I owe them.
"The results aren't going the right way, but we are rebuilding and I knew it would take a couple of years.I know we have the players at the club and the club is working hard to attract some top players and to get some more experience in the squad.
"The region are at quite an exciting point, the start of something that is going to get better."
Jamie Roberts confirmed last week that he will quit the Blues in the summer, with Racing Metro the likely destination.
But Cuthbert, who hopes to face Samoa on Friday, is well aware of the benefits of staying in Wales.
"Being in the Wales environment helps a lot - working with Rob (Howley), Shaun (Edwards), Neil (Jenkins) and Warren (Gatland) is only going to further my development," said the Grand Slam wing.
"The longer I'm in this environment, and the closer I am to it, is only going to be good for me."
And Cuthbert's immediate focus is on Samoa, who will be out to claim revenge for their slender loss to Wales at the World Cup.
"Samoa are going to be gunning for us after the boys beat them in the World Cup. They're a big physical side and I'm looking forward to it," added Cuthbert.
"They will target the first twenty minutes and will come flying out at us. We have to weather their storm and once we can play our rugby hopefully we will come out on top."
