The experienced defender will see his current deal expire at the end of the season and he is yet to be offered fresh terms.

The 33-year-old, who is club captain at the Reebok Stadium, has no issue with the lack of talks as preserving Bolton's Championship status is the top priority for all concerned at present.

He is, however, reluctant to speculate on whether extension discussions will ever be held, with it possible that his five-year association with the Trotters could be coming to a close.

Knight told the Bolton News: "I'm just happy to be playing.

"I've enjoyed five seasons here and one of my main objectives in staying here in the first place was to get the club back into the Premier League, back to the club I started at.

"It hasn't been possible in the last two years, so now I can only wait and see what happens at the end of the season.

"I'll be honest, I don't think we're in a position to talk about things at the moment.

"Our main objective is to finish as high as possible in the league. The manager, the chairman and whoever else can talk to whatever players they like, and go from there."
