Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud admits he remains in the dark about whether Marouane Chamakh will sign a new contract.
Chamakh's current deal expires at the end of the season and the Morocco international has been offered terms to stay with Bordeaux.
He recently revealed that he would not rush into a decision over his future amid speculation he could move to the Premier League next summer.
Arsenal, Sunderland and West Ham United have all shown an interest in the 25-year-old in the past, while Manchester United have recently been linked with a bid.
Triaud confirmed there have been no developments regarding Chamakh's future and acknowledged it is up to the front man whether he stays with the French champions.
"There is nothing new on that case so far," Triaud told Le Quotidien du Foot.
"Am I confident? I must admit I don't know what to say.
"Our improved contract offer is still valid. Now, it depends on him, rather than on me.
"You will have to ask him the question. It is up to him to make the decision."
