Steve Sidwell, Damien Duff and John Arne Riise are among those whose deals are set to expire at the end of the season.

However, Magath is aware that the future of many of his players will depend on whether Fulham are playing in the top flight or drop down to the Championship.

The Cottagers are currently bottom of the table, four points adrift of safety, and Magath wants to focus solely on the scrap for survival.

"At the moment I don't care about the contract situation because we are fighting against relegation," he said in the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle.

"It's different whether you play in the Premier League or the Championship.

"It's not the time to talk about contracts."
