"I've not got a problem with that. There is no pressure to sign either way and the club are just having a look at the whole picture, as they are with others lads in the same situation."
Benno is in his testimonial year at the club, having been former manager Barry Fry's first signing in December 1993.
Meanwhile, Australian international winger Stan Lazaridis has admitted he may have to go in order to secure his long-term future.
Blues have a one year option on his services but cannot give him any immediate guarantees and both Sunderland and Leeds are believed to be showing an interest.
"He's been brilliant to me all season, playing me in over 75 per cent of our games and I'm grateful to him for that.
"This whole thing comes down to circumstance. I've nothing against the gaffer, the owners, the fans or my team-mates for that matter.
"I'm facing one of those difficult issues that sometimes happen to footballers," he added.
"I'm a few months away from the end of my contract and I would love to stay here, I really like this club.
"At the same time, I understand that hands are tied because we don't know what division we'll be playing in next year."
However, Vickers has said he is not worried yet about his uncertain future: "My contract is up at the end of the season. I haven't spoken to the manager about it or anything like that," he said.
"The club will decide whether they want to keep me or not. I don't worry about it anymore. When you reach a certain age you enjoy your football more and whatever will be, will be.
Vickers has had a frustrating season - niggling injuries limiting him to just six appearances so far.
