Northern Ireland striker Warren Feeney admits he is likely to seek a move away from Cardiff City in the January transfer window.
Feeney has made just one brief substitute appearance for the Bluebirds this season since recovering from a hip operation.
The injury scuppered a summer switch to Leeds United and the 28-year-old remains keen to secure first-team football after spending last season on loan at Dundee United.
"I was gutted over the summer with what happened, but I am not one to sit back and look at the past, these things happen in football," Feeney told the Belfast Telegraph.
"The window is coming up in January and we'll see what happens there and take things on in the New Year.
"I want to get out there and I need to get playing to feel good about myself again. I've another six weeks to go and then I'll be looking to get something sorted out.
"The move to Leeds fell through because of the problem with the hip, but that's sorted now and I managed to get myself back ahead of schedule, because I was told I wouldn't kick a ball until the end of October and I was back three weeks before that.
"I'm not one who is going to sit there and pick up the money, I wouldn't do that because I want to play."
