Peter Clarke is waiting on a contract offer from Southend before making a decision on his future.
The 27-year-old has given no indication that he is keen to leave Roots Hall, but is yet to be tied down on a long-term deal.
His future has become an area of concern for the Shrimpers, with contradictory statements released of late by both player and club.
Southend chairman Ron Martin claims Clarke recently spurned the opportunity to discuss a new deal, while the defensive lynchpin denies there has been any such approach.
Having been named the club's Player of the Year for the 2008/09 campaign, Shrimpers supporters are keen to see the unsavoury episode brought to a positive conclusion as quickly as possible.
Clarke insists that remains a possibility and hopes, with the season now over, discussions regarding a contract extension can begin in earnest.
"Now the games are out of the way, I'm sure there will be some dialogue between the club and myself," he told the club's official website.
"I've never asked to leave but I don't know what the chairman has in mind so we will have to see what comes to pass."
