“I’ve told them in the past that I think it’s time for me to move on. There are clubs out there that are interested and that I am excited about.
“I can’t see myself getting too many first-team minutes. I feel that I had a good pre-season, and I thought I might get a chance, but I am really looking forward to the future more than anything.
“I am looking at all possibilities and I am not ruling anything out yet. All I want to do is play and get first-team minutes consistently.”
