Andriy Voronin, currently on loan with Hertha Berlin from Liverpool, wants the German outfit to decide on his future by the end of March. He has previously stated he would be keen to stay with Hertha, but wants the club to make a swift decision as he says other clubs are showing an interest.
"I want to have a decision by the end of March at the latest," Voronin told Bild.
"There are plenty of offers from other clubs and, if it takes too long to talk with Hertha, I will be heading into talks with other clubs.
"Every player needs faith, at Hertha I feel that the players and manager are putting trust in me."
He added: "I could not care less about the idea that Liverpool know what I am doing for Hertha. I am scoring goals for Hertha, not for them.
"I really do not give a damn about the way they are thinking about me."
Hertha's general manager Dieter Hoeness confirmed the club are hoping to agree a deal which will see Voronin stay at the club.
Hoeness said: "Andriy is in brilliant form actually, we really want to keep him at our club.
"I am hopeful we will be able to find a solution. It's a natural fact that he is getting more and more of the spotlight from bigger clubs with more money, and time really is a factor.
"We will do everything we can, but we will not rush into any financial risks."
