Karl Henry has expressed a wish to sign a new contract at Stoke City, but is unsure if the club want to keep him.
The midfielder is out of contract in the summer and is talking over a new deal to stay at The Britannia Stadium.
Henry, who was wanted by Oldham Athletic in March, is hopeful he can reach an agreement to stay with The Potters.
But the 23-year-old admits that, if he is unable to strike a deal with Stoke, he is confident of joining another Championship club.
"Obviously I want to continue playing in The Championship because I want to play at the highest level possible," said Henry.
"I have confidence in my ability and feel I have plenty to offer.
"I want to stay at Stoke, but there are also other options available for me."
Meanwhile, Stoke youngsters Carl Dickinson, Rob Duggan, Robert Garrett, Matt Hazley and Keith Thomas have signed one-year contracts, while Martin Paterson is due to ink a deal.
