David Vaughan has warned Blackpool they need to make him the right offer if they want him to stay at the club.
The midfielder has been one of Blackpool's shining lights in their first season in the Premier League.
Vaughan's contract expires at the end of the season and he could leave on a free transfer with a number of clubs thought to be waiting in the wings to sign the Wales international.
The 27-year-old insists he would be happy to stay at Bloomfield Road, but is disappointed the club have left it so late to try and sort out his future.
"I have told the club what I am after and it is up to them what they want to do," Vaughan told the Blackpool Gazette.
"I am waiting to hear back off them so we'll see what happens.
"Am I hopeful? I don't know. Everyone knows what Blackpool are like, so I really don't know what is going to happen at the moment.
"I am really happy here and the team is playing well, and my family are settled.
"I think the club should maybe have come to me a bit earlier about a new contract, but that is their policy on how they do things so it is up to them what they do really.
"I could speak to different clubs in January with a view to the summer, but I've heard nothing, the club has heard nothing, and the future will sort itself out really.
"I am happy to stay if it can be sorted. The deal has to be right for me and, obviously, also for the club."
