Robbie Blake who is out of contract in June has a new deal on the table but has still not made a decision whether to stay at Turf Moor or not.
The club are now looking for a decsion within the next seven days.
Blake was expected to make his mind up after our last game of the season against Spurs at Turf Moor but his decision had to be delayed due to his son's illness. His son, born only a few weeks ago became ill and only returned from hospital on Friday.
He previously indicated last month that there was just a 'slim possibility` he would stay citing his lack of appearances this season as his main concern. He clearly would find it a wrench to leave Turf Moor but his footballing needs and the requirement at 34 to play more often appear to be taking precedence.
Reports today though in the Lancashire Telegraph suggest Robbie's chances of staying have improved from slim chance to 50:50 so all Clarets fans will be waiting with bated breath over the next week or so for a final decision.
It is understood there have been a few tentative enquiries from other clubs about Blake.
Scottish Premier League club Hearts have been strongly linked in the media, a club also looking at another of our forwards, Steven Thompson.
Brian Laws is obviously keen to keep Blake at Turf Moor, hence the new contract offer but he will have to give him more starts in the Championship to keep him happy. In the Premier League, Blake made just four starts from the 18 games since Laws arrival in January and there was speculation at the time denied by both, that there had been some sort of falling out after the 6-1 tonking at home to Manchester City last April when Blake was substituted at half-time.
