Martin Laursen is set for crunch talks with Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill.
The Daily Mail says Laursen will meet O'Neill on Monday to find out whether or not he has a future at Aston Villa.
The former Denmark defender, 31, has returned home to ponder possible corrective surgery on his right knee.
Villa manager O'Neill could not guarantee Laursen, who has a year left on his contract, would be fit for the start of next season.
The player spent 12 months out three years ago with a problem to his left knee.
