thumbnail Hello,

The German international has refused to rule out a possible move away from his current club, but is optimistic about his future

Hoffenheim defender Andreas Beck has cast doubt over his future at the club after declining to begin contract extension talks.

The club captain has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, who were unwilling to meet the valuation set by Hoffenheim for the player.

Beck, who has 12 months left on his current contract, has not ruled out a move away from the German outfit.

"A new deal can become a topic for me tomorrow or some day in the future, if we need to pick up negotiations." the defender told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"I am still optimistic we could find a solution if everyone is willing to find an agreement, though.

"If I had received a very good offer to extend my deal at Hoffenheim 1899, then I would have signed on," he added.

The 24-year-old joined Hoffenheim from Stuttgart in 2008, and has featured consistently for the club since his arrival.

"I think we will be back at the table if the next few weeks see a good club enquiring about my services." Beck said.

"I am not deceiving anybody. My prime mission is to further develop as a player."

Hoffenheim will be looking to hold onto their captain ahead of the new campaign, after the club finished in 11th place last season.
