Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says no talks are planned to discuss renewing his current contract at the Emirates Stadium.
Wenger's current deal has less than a year to run however the Frenchman is no closer to signing an extension.
And the 63 year old has hinted he could wait until the end of the season before considering whether to remain in north London.
"My own situation? We are not in a hurry," Wenger said. "We are in September and my contract ends in June. There's a long way to go. There are no talks planned.
"I want to do well for this club, at the end I will sit down and decide how I have done for this club. Then I will say yes or no. You judge a manager on how he does with his team."
In late August, the Arsenal Supporters Trust demanded contract talks between the club and Wenger be postponed to allow the manager to focus on the end of the summer transfer window.
The club did sign Mesut Ozil on deadline day but Wenger appears unwilling to begin talks over a new deal, shrouding his future at the club in uncertainty.
Wenger is currently the longest serving manager in English league football, having taken charge of Arsenal in 1996.
He has won seven major honours during his spell in English football having claimed three league titles and four FA Cups across 16 years at Arsenal while he guided the club to the Champions League final in 2006.
However, Wenger's stock has been damaged in recent years amid Arsenal's major trophy drought which goes back to 2005 when the club won the FA Cup after beating Manchester United.
While some sections of the Arsenal support have called for Wenger to be removed as manager, his departure would come as a substantial shock and spark a summer of upheaval in north London.
