Nenad Milijas concedes he will have to consider leaving Wolves in January if he is unable to force his way back into Mick McCarthy's first team.
The Serbian midfielder has yet to feature in the Premier League this season and has been restricted to just two appearances in the Carling Cup.
He is keen to stay at Molineux and is aware there is plenty of time between now and the New Year in which to earn a recall to the starting line-up.
However, the 28-year-old acknowledged that if the situation remains the same come December, he will have to explore finding a new club.
"If it carries on like this then I will try to leave and go somewhere where I will play," said Milijas in the Express & Star.
"I want to be here but if I can't play then it's better for me to go somewhere else.
"But we'll see - there are many games before I need to do anything like that. We will have another look in December."
