Cardiff City boss Dave Jones is still hoping that the club can agree a new contract with goalkeeper Neil Alexander, whose current deal runs out in the summer.
The 29-year-old Scotsman has been with the Bluebirds since the summer of 2001 and has been in excellent form this term.
Amid rumours that contract talks had broken down, Jones told the South Wales Echo: "Now it's up to Neil. If he decides to go, I will just have to look for another keeper.
"The deal is still on the table, but it won't change. The days when this club paid over the odds have gone.
"That's why Cardiff City were £30million in debt at one stage.
"There has been no animosity or row with Neil. We want him to stay and we have made him an offer we feel is fair."
