Former Ireland full-back and Leicester captain Geordan Murphy has hinted that he could retire from all forms of rugby at the end of the current term.
The 34-year-old club captain, who stepped down from the international game in May, has been at the Welford Road side for an impressive 16 years.
Murphy is in the final year of his Tigers contract.
"It's planned to be my last contracted year," Murphy told BBC Radio Leicester.
"If I feel I can continue playing then I will be baying Cockers (Richard Cockerill) for another contract, but if it's time to go then it's time to go."
Murphy has lifted seven Premiership titles, leading the Tigers to glory on two occasions. He also played in the club's back-to-back Heineken Cup triumphs in 2001 and 2002.
"I love it a lot and would contemplate staying on, but I don't know what shape my body will be at the end of the season," said Murphy, who made his Tigers debut as a teenager in 1997.
"I'm hopefully going to sign off with some silverware."
He added: "Things went fantastically well in my first three years, but I didn't ever expect to play for the first team.
"I was offered another three-year contract and went on to win European trophies and lots of other silverware.
"At the end of that, I felt very loyal to the club and sort of made it my home away from home."
