Dani Sordo says that he has still yet to agree a deal for the 2011 WRC season and has admitted that, as things stand, he is out of a drive for the new season.

Sordo has driven for Citroen for some four years but has lost his role with the main factory team for next year after the French manufacturer elected to promote Sebastien Ogier into the second seat alongside Sebastien Loeb.

As a result of that, the future of Sordo has yet to be decided, despite the Spaniard being keen to renew his deal - a deal which would no doubt see him run under the Citroen Junior Team banner for 2011.

However, while confirming talks have taken place, Sordo said nothing had been sorted with Citroen and there were other options available if a deal can't be struck.

"We have talked about next year," he told the official WRC website, "but at the moment I have nothing confirmed. Citroen has been very good for me, a nice team. Obviously, Sebastien [Loeb] and [Sebastien] Ogier are there for next year and we have to see what there is for me, but at the moment I'm out.

"There are some options I'm looking at, but, like I said, nothing is sorted."

Sordo added that he expected his future to be resolved after his home event in Catalunya later this month.

"Catalunya will be a big rally again for me," he said. "Of course, I always want to win, especially at home. It can be an interesting race, let's see what happens. When this rally is done, I will think more about next season."

Citroen boss Olivier Quesnel insists the team is 'working on it' when it comes to Sordo, with the team keen to keep him for next year.
