Michael Morrison hopes to be offered a new deal at Charlton Athletic.
The 26-year-old centre-half made 51 appearances last season as the Addicks survived the Championship relegation battle.
But his current contract expires in the summer and a new one has yet to be offered.
"I was at the Player of the Year dinner and people were saying 'sign up, sign up' but because of the situation we've been in it has been slower than what you'd have liked," Morrison told the South London Press.
"There is talk something will be sorted out - that's all well and good - but is that just lip service? I'd like to think that a contract will be offered before I get back off holiday. Whether it does or not, we'll see.
"If something doesn't get offered me then I'll have to go down other routes. I knew I was going out of contract and I've spoken to different parties, like anybody would.
"It was the sensible decision for both parties to see what league Charlton would be in."
