Steve Watt wants to stay at Maidstone next season.
United have a contract option on their captain and boss Jay Saunders is planning talks.
Watt made his comeback after three months out with a calf injury during the 1-1 draw with East Thurrock and started against Bury Town in the 2-1 win on Saturday.
The former Chelsea defender enjoys playing for his adopted hometown club and hopes to stay.
"I don’t have any ambitions to go anywhere and can’t see myself playing for another club."
Speaking before the weekend, he said: “It’s the club’s option, not mine, so it’s in their hands if they want to keep me.
“I’ve not heard anything yet but I’d love to stay. I don’t have any ambitions to go anywhere and can’t see myself playing for another club.
“Sooner or later, we’ll sit down and have a chat but I’ve been out injured and the club have a decision to make.
“I love it here and the direction the club is going. My wife has lived here all her life, apart from when she was travelling all over the place with me and when the opportunity to join Maidstone came up, I was all for it.
“I’ve always liked to play for a club that means something to me, rather than being somewhere for the sake of it. It’s my hometown club now and want to help it achieve what it wants to achieve.”
