Sebastian Kehl has not ruled out extending his stay at Borussia Dortmund beyond the end of the season but admitted he is not thinking about his future.
The Dortmund captain's contract is due to expire next summer, having played in just five of the club's opening ten games.
The 31-year-old has been plagued with injury since he joined the club in 2002, struggling in previous campaigns to feature in more than half of the season's fixtures.
The skipper can see himself continuing his career with the club but remains cautious of making any hasty decisions because of his fitness troubles.
"I am enjoying being a player of Borussia Dortmund and I can imagine staying on, of course," Kehl told eurosport.yahoo.
"Still, I have learned throughout my career I am unable to make very long term planning.
"I am not thinking about what is up next summer.
"I have been through tough times and at some points you are looking for reasons. But this is not helping.
"I have learned to always return after an injury. I have done this greatly in the past and I am proud with regard to always coming back."
