Greg Halford accepts the financial reality is that cash-strapped Portsmouth could be about to show him the door at Fratton Park.
Halford has been a popular figure at Pompey since arriving from Wolves, initially on loan two years ago, and admits it will be tough to leave the club.
But with Portsmouth now a League One side and the club's administrators looking to move on any significant assets, the 27-year-old utility man has emerged as a target for various clubs.
Halford is flattered by the interest and laid back about what lies ahead.
He told the Portsmouth News: "There is going to be a turnaround and I'm pretty sure the administrator will be moving the majority of us out, including myself.
"You never know, though. Someone could sign a cheque tomorrow and everything will be dandy.
"You have to be open-minded in these situations.
"There are a lot of rumours and I get a lot of tweets asking me to go here, there and everywhere.
"It's nice to have fans at other clubs who appreciate me and want me to sign for their clubs.
"But there is nothing concrete at the minute and I have no plans to talk to other clubs at the moment.
"It will be hard if it does come to leaving. I've built more of a rapport with Pompey fans than any other fans I've played for in my career."
Halford has struggled to find a home for his talents since leaving Colchester in 2007.
Spells at Reading, Sunderland and Wolves were brief and interspersed with loan periods at Sheffield United and Charlton, but Portsmouth has proved a good fit, despite the obvious off-field problems.
"It's been tough from day one - but I've loved every minute," he added.
"From the day I arrived at Millwall, when I first signed, I said it was an honour to play for this club. I still stand by that.
"There has probably been more downs than ups but we have always stuck together.
"It's a proper club and everyone mixes in and sticks together.
"I've built a relationship with the fans. I don't know why that is. You either love or hate my style of football.
"Some people perceive it as lazy, some perceive it as laid back. Pompey fans have perceived it as being confident and have warmed to me - and I've definitely warmed to them.
"This is the closest club to my heart, along with Colchester, where I came through the ranks. One thing's for sure. There aren't any better fans in the country."
