Marcell Jansen claims to have agreed no switch away from Hamburg, but admits he has a decision to make on his future.
The Germany international is contracted to his Bundesliga employers until 2015, but may opt to move on over the summer if things fail to improve.
Hamburg are currently sweating on their top flight status as they languish inside the relegation zone.
Were they to slip through the trapdoor, Jansen's ambition would force him to look elsewhere.
He insists that he is yet to explore the options which may be open to him, but is believed to have a clause in his contract which would allow him to leave if a £4.1million bid is tabled.
The 28-year-old full-back told Hamburger Morgenpost: "I have had a few thoughts about my future, mainly because of the situation we are in at Hamburg.
"I have ambitions, no doubt, but I also have a contract at Hamburg.
"The most important thing for me is receiving a signal from the club. At the moment I have no agreement with any other club, that is a fact."
