Dylan Carreiro may only potentially have one month left at Arbroath.
But if he heads back to parent club Dundee on December 13, he is hoping to leave the Lichties in good shape.
Speaking after Saturday’s clash with Queen’s Park, the Canadian said no talks have taken place regards his loan deal as of yet.
“I am here until December 13. I am not sure what happens after that. No discussions with anyone yet.
“I am happy that Arbroath brought me in and gave me the experience that I need and we will just have to see what happens.
“I came to help them out and gain experience in the Scottish league and so far it has been a positive experience, winning games and scoring goals with Arbroath.”
Reflecting on the defeat to Spiders, who managed to narrow the gap, Carreiro felt they were a little unfortunate not to take something from the game.
“It was a bit disappointing, there were a lot of good chances that could have slotted in the back of the net. On another day we would have, but fair play to Queen’s Park on their defending. They did well today.
“We were pushing but unfortunately we could not get more. It is a bit tough but we just move onto the next game and try and get three points.
“We started off really well and we hope that we keep that run going for the next quarter of the season.
“You never want to lose but we move on from this to the next game.
“Any other day we could have scored those chances but today just wasn’t our day. One game is not going to hurt us, we will just move on.”
