Portsmouth goalkeeper David James has hinted that he is prepared to extend his contract by more than one year at Fratton Park.
The England international, who appeared set to leave in the winter transfer window before a move to Stoke collapsed, will discuss his future in the summer.
James has waived a clause in his current deal that guarantees him new terms because he wants to weigh up his options and aid Pompey in their current financial plight.
But as he prepares for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham, the soon-to-be 40-year-old insists he wants to continue his playing career.
James said in The Sun: "My contract negotiations can take place at the end of the season. We will see.
"But inside there is a young man who wants to get out there and play every minute.
"Why should I limit myself to just one more year? I want to play as long as possible."
Portsmouth are as good as relegated from the Premier League after being hit by a nine-point penalty for going into administration earlier in the season.
