West Ham United's Switzerland international midfielder Valon Behrami is desperate to find out the club's plans going into the January transfer window.
Behrami is one of a number of players who have been linked with moves away from Upton Park, but he just wants to know the club's true financial situation.
He said: "I have spoken a number of times with the people above us to make the situation clear and what is the real situation.
"Right now I am told not to believe what the media are saying, but it is clear that we need to know our future.
"I am looking for someone in January to help us and tell us that we don't have to sell players.
"I am hoping the New Year will be better for everyone at West Ham and we can have some positive things, because right now there is a lot of negativity.
"Off the pitch there has to be stability because when you have problems like this, it can affect you on the pitch and maybe it is the reason why things are going like this for us."
