Steven Pienaar is unhappy about the lack of communication he has had from Everton regarding his future.
Pienaar struggled with a thigh injury during the first half of the season and has made just three substitute appearances in the Premier League with all of those coming in January.
Despite returning to fitness, Pienaar has failed to break into Roberto Martinez's plans and is set to leave Goodison Park when his contract expires at the end of the season.
After 228 appearances for the Toffees, Pienaar gas hit out at the club's treatment of him as he waits to find out about his future.
"I'm 100 per cent fit and felt in good form when I played some games in January," Pienaar told KickOff.com.
"I haven't been in the squad for the last six weeks, I don't know why, and obviously this is a concern for me but that is the coach's decision and I must respect that.
"Waiting until the end of the season to hear whether or not Everton wish to extend my contract is unreasonable, I feel. It's not the way I envisaged ending my career at a club that has been such a major part of my life.
"My representatives have tried a number of times, unsuccessfully, to get hold of the club to talk about my future and get some indication, so I remain in the dark. Obviously I need to keep my options open because I would still like to keep playing for another couple of seasons, at least."
