Ireland claims City are stalling on a new deal and he has two years left on his current deal.
Ireland said: “It’s getting to the stage now where I don’t know if I’m going to be signing or not — that’s down to the club.
“We’re way off to be honest. I think I’ve done enough this year, let my football do the talking.
“They haven’t really made an offer yet. If they make me an offer – great. If not I’ve two years left.”
The 22-year-old is set to be offfered a £60,000-a-week while new left-back Wayne Bridge is on a £80,000-a-week deal.
