Birmingham City's Swedish midfielder Sebastian Larsson remains hopeful that his club will open talks over a new contract in the not too distant future.
The 24-year-old has been at St Andrew's since the summer of 2006, but his current deal runs out at the end of the season, with talks having stalled during the recent takeover of the club.
Larsson said: "While the takeover was going on, things were on hold and it didn't happen and we will have to see what the new owners want to do, if they want to keep me.
"That is up to them. I am up for talking for them and I am excited about the future here at Birmingham City.
"I think the takeover and the promise of funds for new players has been a big lift for the whole club, the supporters and everyone.
"The feelgood factor is back a little bit at Birmingham.
"I am just concentrating on the football now but, if they want to come to me and discuss things, then I am definitely up for it."
