Carlos Edwards has admitted he would be happy to take a pay cut to win a new deal at Ipswich.
The 33-year-old, who has recently stood in as captain in the absence of the injured Ibrahima Sonko, is out of contract in the summer and has yet to be offered a new deal.
The Trinidad & Tobago international insists he is happy with life at Portman Road and that he hopes to sort out his long-term future.
"I would love to stay, I am happy here and most importantly, my family are happy here," Edwards told the East Anglian Daily Times.
"I am not the only player out of contract in the summer but I think it is a big thing because maybe I am one of the more consistent players.
"People will look at it and might think why doesn't the club sign him up instead of letting it drag on but I am just concentrating on my football at the moment.
"I would consider a pay cut; maybe not many players would say that, but I would have to weigh up my options because I have a family to look after.
"If they are happy, then the football takes care of itself. If they are not happy, then you might take that into work and not do things the right way."
