Liverpool defender target Michal Kadlec will wait until the summer before deciding on his future.
The Czech international has emerged as one of the left-backs reportedly on the Anfield radar, with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish keen to strengthen in the position.
Oscar Wendt, Jose Enrique and Fabio Coentrao have also been linked within the last month, but Kadlec has spoken on the speculation and is keen to wait before a decision is made.
"There is a lot of speculation - we will see in the summer what happens," Kadlec told Sky Sports News Radio.
"It is super for me - when I heard that Liverpool have maybe heard of me, that I exist. We will see in the summer."
The Bayer Leverkusen defender has been in fine form for the Bundesliga side this season, reportedly impressing Liverpool scouts when they made the trip to watch the player in Germany.
It's understood that 'King Kenny' is eager to find a replacement for Paul Konchesky as soon as possible, with the player set for a permanent exit following his loan out of Liverpool in January.
Glen Johnson has filled in admirably for the Reds, but the England international is not seen as the long-term option on Merseyside and Dalglish is expected to spend on the are at the end of the season.
NESV, the club's owners, proved in the last transfer window that they are willing to back the manager financially and the Liverpool faithful will be hoping the Americans do the same again at the next opportunity.
