Carlos Cuellar has yet to receive a new contract offer from Aston Villa and has revealed he has had interest from other clubs.
The £8million signing from Rangers in 2008, whose current deal expires this summer, has been holding talks with Villa over his future.
But 30-year-old defender Cuellar, in impressive form in recent weeks, has confirmed no concrete proposal has so far been put forward by Alex McLeish.
He said: "Has there been an offer? No, there has been no offer yet. I am relaxed about it, I am fine.
"If they want me to stay here, it will be easy. I am happy here at Villa, I would like to stay.
"If not, if my contract is finished I will have to say, 'thank you, goodbye, it was a pleasure to be here, and I am grateful for the last four years'.
"In football it sometimes happens, it's alright."
He continued: "Because I'm in my last year, from January I could speak to other teams, even sign if I wanted.
"But always I give the first opportunity to Villa. There is interest from other clubs, but I say no at this stage. If I'm not in the manager's plans, I will start to talk."
