Western United boss John Aloisi has yet to speak with Alessandro Diamanti about his future after the Italian claimed he had been offered a new deal by the club.
Western currently sit top of the A-League ladder and are priced at 9/1 to go on and win the grand final, with Diamanti expected to play a key role.
Diamanti has been in great form since joining Western for their inaugural A-League campaign in the 2019/20 season but he turns 39 in May and has yet to decide whether he will play on.
However the playmaker has revealed the club have offered him a contract for the 2022/23 season and now he has to decide whether to sign it.
Speaking ahead of the game with Sydney FC on Saturday, Aloisi says the contract offer is news to him and he has not spoken with Diamanti about staying on.
That could change but for now he is focused on preparing for games and picking up points.
"That's discussions that we'll have internally. We haven't spoken about that at length," Aloisi told reporters. "It's funny that Dia's mentioned it, I didn't even know that he's spoken about that on a podcast.
"Look, I'm happy with all of them. I'm happy with the way that they're wanting to work and wanting to improve and someone like the Diamanti at his age is still wanting to improve and learn.
"It's great to have, not only him but (Nikolai) Topor-Stanley, Neil Kilkenny - the older players are great for our younger players and they set the culture and they drive it. At the moment I haven't spoken to Dia personally about anything other than you know preparing him for games."
