Incoming owner Todd Boehly is aware of the urgency to tie down James and his fellow academy graduate Mason Mount to new deals.
But James, who has three years left at his boyhood club, said "at the moment there is nothing going on with a contract".
He also said: "I want to be playing every game I can and this season has probably been my worst season for injuries.
"I've picked up more than I ever have before. That's something I need to work on going into the new season. I'm sure there are a few things I can adapt or change going into the new season, to try and change and make sure I don't reoccur the same injuries."
