Defender Guy Branston has warned Torquay they may have lost out on the chance to keep him - even if they win promotion.
The 32-year-old, who was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year, will be at the heart of the defence as they battle Stevenage for a place in League One in the play-off final at Old Trafford on Saturday, but it could be his last game for the club as he is still to receive an offer of a new contract.
Branston admits his first choice would be to stay with the Gulls, but with his contract expiring next week, he will now listen to offers from other clubs.
"I am not looking for a short-term fix, I am looking for a long-term one," he said. "If it is not sorted as soon as possible after the season ends then obviously I will have to look elsewhere as I have a family to feed and bills to pay.
"I have spoken to representatives of other clubs and they have shown an interest as I am out of contract and I have had a successful season.
"Torquay could have signed me in January. I definitely would've signed, but my contract runs out next week. Everyone knows I am out of contract so I should get plenty of interest."
