Rangers youngster Dean Furman is still to sign a new deal at Ibrox as he craves regular first-team football next season.
The 21-year-old midfielder is out of contract this summer but has been offered fresh terms to extend his stay with the Scottish Premier League champions.
Having spent last season away from the club on a season-long loan with Bradford, Furman does not want to spend next term in the Gers' reserves.
Bantams boss Stuart McCall recently admitted defeat in his bid to sign Furman on a permanent deal, claiming clubs higher up the English league rankings were interested in his services.
Furman believes his future will be resolved in the coming fortnight and will only commit to a club where he is confident of being involved regularly.
"I'm out of contract. There's an offer on the table from Rangers but as yet I've not accepted it. So much is up in the air at the moment but hopefully in the next couple of weeks things will become clearer," he told the Daily Record.
"I'm looking at my best option. I absolutely loved my time at Bradford and it was disappointing the last few weeks of the season went downhill after we'd been in the play-off spot for most of the campaign.
"Regular football was the big thing. It was senior football as opposed to reserve outings. It was the next step in my career and it has made me a better player.
"I want to be somewhere I can get the chance to play every week because the past season has given me a sniff of that level and I've loved it.
"Rangers are a different level but I feel I can handle the pressure of playing in front of 50,000 fans every week.
"My best option is to go where I can get the chance to play and hopefully over the next couple of weeks that can be resolved."
