Burnley striker Chris Iwelumo has admitted he does not know what will happen to him in the summer after the club accepted an offer for him in January.
The Scotland international was on the verge of leaving the Clarets when an unnamed club came in for him, but the move collapsed.
He remains a key player in Burnley's push for the play-offs this season, notching 11 goals to date, but has told skysports.com that the club's decision to accept an offer for him came as a complete surprise.
"It was one of those things where the club accepted an offer for their top scorer, which surprised me, but I just kept my head down and nothing really materialised from it," he said.
"Whatever happens in the summer will happen because in football you can't really say what is just around the corner for you until it happens.
"I was happy at the club when they accepted the offer and I remain happy here, so as far as I'm concerned I will remain a Burnley player next season."
Ifs and buts
The Clarets are just two points adrift of the top six and still face a trip to rivals Leeds before the end of the season.
Iwelumo insists that despite their sluggish away form the pressure is on the Yorkshire outfit to hold on to the final play-off berth.
"There has been a lot of talk about our away form this season, but we did go 13 games unbeaten at one stage of the season, drawing most of our away games in that run, so it hasn't all been bad on our travels," he explained.
"If you ask every team there would be things that they reflect on as negatives, with ifs and buts along the way.
"We've only won five games away from home all season, which hasn't been good enough, but it is just one of those things.
"It is a long season and people say that it evens itself out during that time, but the pressure is on Leeds at this moment in time.
"We've got nothing to lose and if they falter we will hopefully be ready to capitalise."
