Czech Republic midfielder Rudi Skacel admits he is a 'little bit scared' that he will be unable to agree a new contract at Hearts.
Skacel returned to Hearts last season and enjoyed an impressive campaign for the club, but his contract is due to expire.
The 31-year-old has joined the club's pre-season training camp in Italy and remains keen to stay with Jim Jefferies' side.
However, he is disappointed a deal has yet to be agreed and is becoming increasingly concerned he will have to move on from Tynecastle.
"I thought everything would be done by now," Skacel told the Daily Record.
"I'm a little bit scared because before I thought it was 95 per cent sure I would stay with Hearts, now I think this percentage is a little bit less.
"I still hope I can help this team. Hopefully we can restart a negotiation in the next couple of days.
"I spoke with the gaffer and I think for both of us it's better if we sort it this way or another way before next week.
"I've said a million times I want to stay here but if we don't start negotiations or make deals soon, that's life, I have to move on and find another job."
