Styche: I want to stay
ON-LOAN striker Reece Styche says he wants to turn his temporary stay with Wanderers into a permanent one.
The 24-year-old is at Adams Park until the end of the season on loan from Forest Green Rovers, but his contract with the Conference side runs out in the summer.
And the Gibraltar international says that after being given his first taste of Football League action with Wanderers, he's keen for more next season.
Styche said he hasn't spoken to Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth about extending his stay just yet, but is hoping talks can begin soon.
Asked if he wanted to make the move to Bucks permanent, he said: "Definitely - it's League football, it's a great set-up here. The manager knows I'm enjoying it here and hopefully it can be made permanent.
"We have to see how the season goes but maybe we'll sit down and talk about extending it further.
"It was always a case of me proving my fitness and then the move be made permanent, but you never know what happens in football.
"I've enjoyed my time here. It's on the back burner - I'm just carrying on playing football and everything will take care of itself."
Styche has made a good impression leading the line for Blues since joining in January, impressing Ainsworth with his hold-up play and ability to bring team mates into the action.
He's yet to get on the scoresheet in his nine appearances with Wanderers, having enjoyed a prolific spell with Forest Green before being hit with a snapped cruciate ligament.
But he's backed himself to start finding the back of the net soon.
He said: "I'm not worried about not scoring goals. When the chances aren't coming and you're not in the positions to score, that's when you've got to start questioning yourself, but goals will always come."
Ainsworth said: "I like him. He still needs some fitness and we've spoken about this, but he's a good lad to have around the place, a really good professional.
"He's waiting to score his first league goal and when he does we'll see a flurry then. He's one in three in the Conference and there's not much of a difference between the two standards.
"Reece is frustrated but he's been great. He's been a really good professional, he's not been moaning at not being in the team."
