Tomasz Kuszczak has conceded he may have to quit Manchester United in order to play more regular first-team football.
The Polish goalkeeper joined United from West Brom in 2006, initially on loan, but has made just 52 appearances for the club.
He started last week's UEFA Champions League draw with Rangers and is expected to be in the team for Wednesday's Carling Cup tie at Scunthorpe United.
Kuszczak saw former team-mate Ben Foster leave United for Birmingham City over the summer following his lack of opportunities at Old Trafford.
It is a path that Kuszczak may also follow at the end of the season if he fails to dislodge Edwin van der Sar as United's first choice.
Years going by
"I could understand Ben's position," Kuszczak told the Manchester Evening News.
"He wanted to move because he wanted regular football and he wanted to play for England.
"But if I don't get enough games I will have to do the same as Ben.
"The years are going by and I will be 29 after this season. I want to enjoy football and I want to play."
