Wolfsburg striker Patrick Helmes remains in the dark about his future, despite firing his club to victory over Cologne on Saturday in their Bundesliga opener.
The former Germany international has been linked with a move away from the 2009 league champions as they attempt to bring in Freiburg's Papiss Demba Cisse.
And Helmes is aware not even Saturday's double may be enough to convince coach Felix Magath to change his mind.
"We have won 3-0, I have scored two goals and the rest is up to the coach," he said.
"Normally for this I would have a guaranteed starting berth, but what is normal?
"I was being written off before the season started and every other day, I am supposed to be sold.
"For as long as it is only gossip and nobody comes to tell me it, then it doesn't interest me much."
However, Wolfsburg's bid for Cisse, who scored in Freiburg's 2-2 draw against Augsburg yesterday, appears to be taking shape.
"I have not yet spoken to Mr Magath, but my agent is doing that at the moment," the Senegal international told ZDF television.
"People are working on it and we will just have to wait and see."
Cisse, who was the Bundesliga's second-highest scorer last season behind Bayern Munich's Mario Gomez, is Magath's prime target to complete his attack this summer.
