Eintracht Frankfurt wing-back Timothy Chandler says he wants clarity on his future at the Bundesliga club as soon as possible.
Chandler, 26, returned to first club Frankfurt on a three-year contract in 2014 following four years with Nurnberg and now has just six months left to run on his current deal.
The Germany-born United States international, who has been a mainstay in the Frankfurt team this season, is to begin talks with the club during the upcoming winter break, and he is hopeful that both parties can come to an agreement.
Chandler also confirmed that he is part of Bruce Arena's plans, despite reports that the new United States head coach might focus on domestically based players instead of those plying their trade in Europe.
"That's not the case," Chandler, who met with Arena during his recent trip to Europe, said.
Chandler will miss Frankfurt's match at Wolfsburg on Saturday through suspension following his red card against Hoffenheim last week.
