Northampton manager Stuart Gray remains hopeful he can persuade defender Jason Crowe to stay at the club.
The 28-year-old former Arsenal and Portsmouth full-back is out of contract and a number of clubs, including Nottingham Forest, have shown interest.
"We are still in the frame to re-sign Jason," said Gray.
"If he agrees to stay that is great. If he decides to go then we will shake hands and move on. We're planning for both eventualities."
