David Fox is being made to play a waiting game as he seeks to extend his contract with Norwich City.
The midfielder is one of several players at the club who's existing agreements expire in the summer, and the 28-year-old admits he doesn't know yet whether he will be offered a new deal.
Fox is in no rush to leave Canaries having joined them from Colchester two years ago, but he has revealed that talks over his future are on hold under City are mathematically safe from the threat of relegation.
The former Manchester United trainee can understand Paul Lambert's caution, while making it abundantly clear that he wants the chance of adding to his 64 appearances for the club in the coming seasons.
Fox told reporters: "I would love to stay. We will just have to wait and see.
"There are others in my situation as well and we will all wait and see what the manager wants to do with us.
"I am sure he will let us know soon. You just sort of get on with it. Whether you have four weeks or four years left, you just enjoy your football.
"The club has been in a very bad situation in the past money-wise so the manager is not in a position to be handing out big contracts and then we get relegated.
"You don't want to see the club in the position they were before and the club as a whole are cutting their cloth accordingly and doing things sensibly since they came to the Premier League.
"It is very easy to get promoted and throw loads of money at the lads and then get relegated and the club are in trouble then."
