Ipswich Town full-back David Wright is hoping to be offered a new contract to extend his time at Portman Road.
Wright is approaching three years as a Town player, but his current deal is due to expire at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old is keen to stay with the club and is waiting to discover if manager Roy Keane will hand him an extension.
"It can play on your mind when you have only got six months left on your contract," Wright told the club's official website.
"When it hits you is when you get asked to put your children's names down for school, things like that. Not knowing my future is a bit scary. Not knowing my kids' future is worse.
"If things don't go as I hope they do, then I'm going to have to uproot the family and try and get them settled somewhere else and the whole process starts again.
"So that's what plays on your mind, but that's another part of the game. You have to get on with it and I can't let it affect me.
"I have to play well, work hard and stay in the team and hopefully that will bring its rewards because I definitely want to stay here. I love the club. I love the area and so do my family."
