The 22-year-old's current deal expires in June and Gradi has decided to only offer the defender a 12-month deal in order to prove his ability and fitness next term.
"Chris has great potential and has got into the team and done well," Gradi told the club's official website.
"But he hasn't yet proved he can do it week in and week out.
"He still has work to do to prove that he can be anything other than an extra in my squad.
"But he has made great strides this season and made a decent offer to him. We have been very loyal to him."
