The combative midfielder has been with the German outfit since 2007, but his current deal at the club will come to an end in the summer.
A number of European clubs have been linked with his services in recent months, but the American is remaining coy on his long-term future.
"I do not know anything about next season," he told Reviersport.
"If I have to leave Schalke at the end of this season, this would be a great pity. I like playing at the Veltins-Arena and for Schalke.
"Even if I have to leave the club then my career in the game would go on."
Jones has previously had a loan spell in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers.
