Chris Coleman agreed a two-year extension to his contract as Wales manager prior to last month's defeats to Macedonia and Serbia - but the document remains unsigned.
He will go into Wales' final two World Cup qualifiers - against Macedonia and Belgium - with a raft of senior players either ruled out, or serious doubts, due to injury.
Gareth Bale was named in the 23-man squad released this morning, but won't play due to a thigh problem.
Coleman said he picked Bale as he was hopeful the 24-year-old would be able to play a part, but has since had it confirmed that the Real Madrid star is not fit.
Joe Ledley, Joe Allen, Andrew Crofts and Sam Vokes are also all suffering with injuries.
Coleman's decisions over two further defenders have also raised eyebrows.
Captain Ashley Williams has been selected despite his Swansea manager Michael Laudrup calling for him to be given time to recover from injury.
James Collins was not included, after Coleman claimed he had turned down the chance to join up with the squad last month.
