Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Michael Ballack is keeping his options open ahead of the summer.
The former Germany international will be a free agent at the end of the season and appears highly unlikely to earn a new contract at BayArena.
Ballack has struggled with injuries and was consequently unable to secure a regular place in the plans of former managers Jupp Heynckes and Robin Dutt.
But caretaker manager Sami Hyypia has said he will use the former Chelsea star until the end of the season, although that will not influence the player's career options.
Ballack, 35, told Bild: "Most important is that we now have a personality in charge of the team who has an idea of how to do things.
"That Sami Hyypia handed me a starting chance is no matter, of course. I am yet unaware what the future will be.
"There are many links. Some are even coming right from my agent. It is not the best thing to be in the media with these things every now and then.
"If there is anything to conclude, I will decide. I am the player."
