On fire: Nemani Nadolo

One of the top try scorers in Super Rugby this year, Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo is keen to stay with the Crusaders next season.

Nadolo will return to Japan to play in the NPC with NEC Green Rockets following the conclusion of Super Rugby, but hopes to come back to Christchurch.

The winger has been somewhat of a revelation for the Crusaders and a potent threat in their backline, meaning fans should be delighted to hear that Nadolo wants to come back for 2015.

"It hasn't been sorted out, yet, but hopefully it will be pretty soon," Nadolo told Stuff.

"I am off to Japan after this but I really want to come back and build on this. We're in talks.

"I have been away with Fiji for a month, so I have just got back. I'm sure things will start cranking up towards the end of the season. Hopefully they will want me and we will sort something out."

Despite the prospect of the Australian-qualified wing being targeted by another franchise over the Tasman, Nadolo underlined that if he came back to Super Rugby to play for anyone it would be the Crusaders.

"If I am going to play Super Rugby it is going to be with the Crusaders," added Nadolo.

"They have given me this opportunity, so the loyalty is there. I have always wanted to play Super Rugby and in the past things didn't go my way.

"These guys came and gave me a lifeline and I am forever indebted to them."
