The U's leading scorer recently collected the player of the year award and his future has been subject to much speculation with only a year remaining on his contract.
But the 23-year-old admits there is no reason why he wouldn't be at the Weston Homes Community Stadium next term.
"I've got another year at Colchester. It's up to the gaffer, and I don't see why I won't be here for another year," he told the East Anglian Daily.
"I feel like I'm getting better and better as a player, and I've managed to get a bit of consistency this season.
"I've got used to playing in central midfield, and feel comfortable there. My fitness levels have also improved."
