The actor, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, has admitted he is keen to explore other roles.
Danny joined the BBC One soap in 2013, and may not chose to renew his contract when it runs out in October.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “We’ll have to see then. Four years is a long time.
It has been previously claimed Danny was poised to sign a new deal to keep him with the soap, which would also see him take home for than the £400,000 he is reported to currently pocket a year.
A source told The Mirror: “Danny is so popular it’s a no-brainer.
The question mark over Danny’s future on the show comes after reports the Carters could be set to lose the Queen Vic in a new storyline.
Actors Luisa Bradshaw-White and Ted Reilly, who play Tina and Johnny Carter, teased what lies ahead in an interview with Digital Spy.
“I think there is a danger – I think there is!” Luisa added.
It was recently revealed Max Branning is planning revenge on the residents of Albert Square, following his wrongful imprisonment for the murder of Lucy Beale, and it seems he has his eyes set on the Vic.
