Mehdi Nafti is chasing a new contract at Birmingham City.
The Tunisia international will become a free agent next summer and has already spoken on the issue with new Blues boss Alex McLeish.
Nafti said: "I want to make sure my future is sorted out because I'm in the last year of my contract. I went to the manager to find out what he expects from me before I go to Africa.
"I just want to know about my future at the club. It's important for my own mind to know before I go away so we will have to see.
"The reaction from the manager has been positive. I played in his first two games before being suspended for Saturday's game with Reading and he has been happy with me."
