Swansea City's star midfielder Ferrie Bodde returned to Swansea this week after undergoing a 6-week rehabilitation programme in Holland.
He suffered a knee ligament injury in November and was ruled out for the rest of this season.
Having watched his team-mates convincingly beat second-placed side Reading 2-0 last weekend, Bodde says there's no reason why he can't return next year and be playing top flight football at the Liberty Stadium.
Bodde told Swans World:
|'Yes, the next time I pull on a Swans shirt it could be in the Premiership, Why not?|
'I've been following the games on Dutch satellite television and the way they played against Reading is worthy of the Premiership.
'As a team we have adapted to the Championship and getting stronger all the time. We've played all the top teams now and if we can get to the play-offs I think we've already proved we can beat anyone.
'Everyone should be very proud of what the club has achieved so far this season - I know I am.''
'I'll be spending a week in Holland with my family and then a week back over here,'' he added. 'Then as my knee gets stronger I will be spending more time in Swansea.
'I can't wait to start training again full-time because I am determined to come back a stronger and better player for Swansea City.''
'I found it hard to take what happened,''
'It was a bad injury. It came from nothing, but left me out for the season.
'But I've got my head around what happened and I'm getting better every week. I spent the first four weeks on crutches and then two weeks in a brace which slowed my progress.
'But I can finally do some exercise now and I'm looking forward to getting fit and strong as quick as possible.
'The last six weeks have gone pretty quickly, so I'm hoping the next few months will as well.
'Maybe I can surprise a few people and come back earlier, but my main priority is still next season.''
