Mick McCarthy will decide his Wolves players' future in the summer.
Mick McCarthy will decide his Wolves players' future in the summer after Jackie McNamara was linked with a return to Scotland.
McNamara is among several players out of contract at Molineux at the end of the season and could head back to Scottish football.
Hibernian are reportedly keen on the veteran defender, while Livingston are thought to want to discuss their management position with the 33-year-old.
Wolves boss McCarthy is aware his players may not be prepared to wait, but he is not willing to discuss new deals while the club are chasing promotion to the Premiership.
"I'm not getting involved with contracts at the moment," McCarthy told the Express & Star.
"It is not the time or the place at the moment. There is plenty of time after the season finishes to start thinking about that.
"Of course it is the players' prerogative to pick and chose and decide what they want to do at the end of the season, too.
"It is a free market, when you're out of contract you can pick and chose what you want to do."
