The 23-year-old would prefer to focus on his football and leave talks to his agent and his dad, former England international Mark.
And Hateley is not fretting over his situation, despite having just months remaining on his current deal at Europa League-chasing Motherwell.
He said in the Daily Record: "I haven't had any chats. I leave all of that stuff to my dad and my agent.
"As long as I'm playing every weekend, I'm happy and don't really want to get involved.
"If the club want to speak with my dad and my agent, so be it. It's something they'll deal with and call me if there is something to talk about.
"I'm just going to enjoy my football and then I'll see what happens come the end of the season."
