Leeds midfielder Neil Kilkenny admits it is up to the club to decide whether he has a future at Elland Road.
The 25-year-old is currently on international duty with Australia at the Asian Cup but his Whites contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
Kilkenny has been at Leeds since 2008 and has spoken of his desire to sign new terms with the Championship promotion hopefuls.
However, it remains to be seen if a fresh deal can be negotiated by the two parties, with Kilkenny revealing that discussions have already begun.
"There's nothing to discuss about my contract at the moment," he said.
"Discussions have started, they have been going on for a long time so we'll wait and see when I get back.
"At the end of the day if Leeds want to keep me they know I want to stay, so the ball is in their court."
Kilkenny had been an important part of the Leeds midfield prior to departing to Qatar towards the end of last month.
Australia are in the semi-finals of the Asian Cup and Kilkenny will be looking to feature in his third successive match when the Socceroos take on Uzbekistan on Tuesday.
