Grimsby Town have opened talks with striker Anthony Elding over extending his contract by a further year.
The 29-year-old signed from Rochdale last summer and has recently been made club captain.
Town's joint manager Rob Scott told BBC Radio Humberside: "We've got an option on Anthony and we've already spoken to him about it.
"He's in the side, he's playing well, he's a Grimsby Town player and will continue to remain so."
Elding has scored nine goals in 26 league appearances this season for the Mariners.
He began his career at his hometown club of Boston and had a trial with Tottenham in 2002.
He has also had spells at Stevenage, Leeds United, Crewe Alexandra, Lincoln City, Kettering, Ferencvaros, Rochdale and Stockport.
