Dual North Melbourne club champion Shaun Higgins intends to complete the final year of his contract next season and says he is yet to enter formal negotiations beyond that.
Higgins fronted the media on Tuesday as speculation continues about his playing future.
Asked if he wanted to stay at Arden St, the 31-year-old told reporters: "I'm contracted for next year, if people have forgotten that."
"The reports that came out last night, in terms of me rejecting (an extra one) year offer (and instead wanting two more seasons), are factually incorrect," Higgins said.
"I actually haven't received anything from the football club. A little bit baffling where that came from last night, but I guess that's part and parcel of the media."
