DaMarcus Beasley has all but called time on his PSV Eindhoven days and confirmed that he wants to make his loan move to Manchester City permanent.

The US international has been on a season-long loan from the Dutch giants, but although he still has a year left on his contract, a return ticket to the Philips Stadion is not on the agenda.

"PSV is a closed book," Beasley told YA. "I had a great time there. I won two championships, was leading scorer for my team in the Champions League in the first season and got to the semifinal, but I think it is time to move on from there. I don't think (PSV) is really an option now."

The Farmers have struggled to conjure offense from the left side in Beasley's absence and let the last of a one-time large Eredivisie lead slip away under first-year coach Ronald Koeman this weekend.

The Indiana-born winger has struggled with injuries since arriving at the City of Manchester Stadium, but has now clocked 20 appearances and enjoyed a recent scoring run of two goals in three games before hobbling off with a hamstring strain against Watford on Saturday.

City coach Stuart Pearce has remained coy about the 24-year old's future at the club, but the player himself is in no doubt about where he wants to be come next season.

"I'd like to stay at Man City and continue my football here," Beasley confirmed.

"That would be something I would love to do. I think Man City has until May 1st to make a decision as to whether they want to keep me or not so we'll see."

Beasley and the Citizens will try to halt a three-game winless slide when they host Aston Villa on Saturday.
