PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Afellay is in no hurry to commit to a contract extension and he could consider a move abroad, according to his agent.
The Holland international's current deal is due to expire in June 2011 and so there is no immediate rush on the part of the player or club to reach a new agreement.
But if it becomes clear that Afellay is not going to put pen to paper then Eredivisie leaders PSV could sell this summer rather than allow the 23-year-old to leave for free 12 months later.
Afellay's representative, Rob Jansen, insists his client is settled in Eindhoven, however, he has not ruled out a move away from Philips Stadion.
Jansen told Sportweek: "The contract between Ibrahim and PSV expires in June 2011, so we are not in a hurry to renew.
"We decided to take it easy and think carefully before signing any renewal.
"Ibrahim is very happy with what he is doing at PSV and so it is possible that he will stay in Eindhoven.
"But he could also decide to move abroad. At the moment I cannot say anything else. We will see how the situation develops."
