Matthew Upson has put his future on hold and will not sign a new deal at West Ham before the end of the season.
The defender's contract expires at the end of the season and he will be available on a free transfer in the summer. With the Hammers battling for their Premier League survival, Upson admits his future is dependent on the club's position at the end of the season.
Upson has made over 130 appearances for West Ham since joining the club in January 2007, but he is not prepared to commit to the club before the summer.
"Nothing has been done and we will just see how it plays out this season," Upson said. "The club are in quite a difficult position in terms of assessing where to head in the summer.
"Obviously a lot depends on their Premier League status and other issues. You can't possibly say what will happen. We spoke but it is in a position that is on hold and we will see how it plays out."
Meanwhile, reports on Tuesday morning suggest Manchester City defender Wayne Bridge has agreed to join Manchester City on loan.
