ABERDEEN captain Mark Kerr has insisted he would like to remain at Pittodrie.
Kerr is one of five senior players whose contract runs out at the end of the season, along with team-mates Charlie Mulgrew, Gary McDonald, Lee Miller and Ricky Foster.
The Dons are currently working on securing the long-term futures of youngsters Peter Pawlett, Michael Paton, Fraser Fyvie and Chris Maguire, and and the 27-year-old skipper would like to be next in line for contract talks.
Kerr said: "I would like to stay and it's up to the club to put things in place.
"They are trying to tie up some of the younger boys, and one or two of the older players are next in line.
"I'm loving it, I feel comfortable in the [captain's] role."
Recently, Dons boss Mark McGhee said: "Mark [Kerr] has settled well into the captain's role although he'd be the first to admit it was tough at first.
"He has sorted it out now and is looking more confident which is great."
