Nick Montgomery is hoping to agree a new contract to extend his stay with Sheffield United in the coming weeks.
The midfielder insists he is in no hurry to see his future resolved and has no intention of looking for a move to pastures new.
The 28-year-old has been a regular in the first team at Bramall Lane since the 2000/01 season having emerged from the Blades' youth academy.
"I'm in talks about my contract, but these things take time and I'm not wanting to rush things. I'm fully focused on playing in two important matches over the Christmas period," he said.
"I'll leave negotiations to other people, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks there might be something sorted out.
"I've been with this club through thick and thin and can honestly say I love the Blades.
"When I started we used to get 11,000 at home games, now we regularly get in excess of 25,000 week after week, so Sheffield United is a massive club.
"I'm happy to be a part of what is happening at Sheffield United and I'm in no rush to leave it behind."
