East Fife will not make any decisions on the future of Billy Raducanu until next week.
The Republic of Ireland striker has been linked with a move to Stevenage.
“He’s said he wants to give the rest of the season a go and if he does that then we’ll sit down to discuss things,” said manager Garry Brown.
“Because he’s not settled up here we need to get to a solution that suits both parties.”
East Fife have not conceded a goal in their last two Scottish Championship matches and could climb into the play-off places if they beat Alloa on Sunday.
And Brown is expecting another intense encounter against the Honest Men.
“It’s going to be a challenge – we are playing at home again on a decent pitch in a packed arena and really on top of Alloa,” he told BBC Scotland.
“We’re the team above them so if we win that, we will be in the play-offs.
“I have a lot of respect for Alloa – they are a lot of fun to watch, they play good football and are going for promotion.
“If we can keep a clean sheet and keep going forward then we are as good as anyone.
“We’ve defended superbly this season and I can’t emphasise enough the importance of the back four.”
