Everton Ladies midfielder Jill Scott admits she will consider her future before putting pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Blues.
A busy few weeks following the close of the WSL campaign have seen the departures of long-serving manager Mo Marley, as well as first-team players Fara Williams, Natasha Dowie and Becky Easton.
Andy Spence was appointed the side’s new boss on Wednesday and Scott was promptly offered a revised deal.
However, the North East-born England star wants time to mull over her choices before extending her stay on Merseyside.
"Like many other players in the Women's Super League, my two-year contract has come to an end and the losses have left Everton weaker,” she said. "But with three months until the start of the season there is plenty of time for Andy Spence to bring in new faces and it will also probably kick off a busy period where there will be plenty of movement between clubs.
"From a personal stance, I've had a new contract offer from Everton this week, but I am being totally honest in saying that I've not made a decision yet as I've not had time to weigh things up. I don't want to be the boy, or girl, that cried wolf and say something which I then change my mind about.
"I'm back working now at Gateshead Academy, which is good, because I tend to over-think things anyway. It will take my mind off it a bit.
“But I will speak to the right people and hopefully make the right decision."
