Wolverhampton Wanderers' veteran midfielder Paul Ince will wait until Glenn Hoddle's future at the club is known before signing up to another season at Molineux.
Hoddle has further talks scheduled with the club's hierarchy this week and an announcement on his future is expected imminently.
The former England manager has been linked with a move to West Ham United and even a switch to Arsenal to work as ArsEne Wenger's assistant after the pair forged a rapport at Monaco earlier in their careers.
Following Wolves' 18-match unbeaten finish to the campaign, Ince knows Hoddle will be in demand.
But the ex-Manchester United and Liverpool player, who has been offered a new one-year deal at Wolves, hopes Hoddle stays as it will help him decide his own future.
Ince, aged 37, said: "Glenn is a fantastic manager as he has proved again over the last six months and I hope he stays because it has been good to work with him again.
"Everyone knows I love playing for Wolves and hopefully I can play on for another year with Glenn in charge."
Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Wolves' player of the year Joleon Lescott. The centre-back has two years left on his contract but his return to fitness following knee problems has alerted Premiership clubs.
