Portsmouth defender Andy Griffin has not ruled out staying at Fratton Park.
Griffin, who has one year remaining on his Portsmouth contract, spent most of last season on loan at Stoke and it was expected the move would become permanent.
However Griffin has returned to pre-season duty with Pompey and, with his future still undecided, he admits he is happy to be back playing football.
"It's good to be back, as a footballer I like to play football," Griffin told The Portsmouth News.
"I have not signed for any other club and am still a Portsmouth player, hence I am down here.
"I've been a little bored over the past few weeks and had turned to weeding my garden.
"I am a Portsmouth player and my duty is to report back and train.
"If I didn't show up it would be disrespectful to the club.
"I might be here for six months, I might be here for six weeks but while I am down here I will train hard and what comes comes.
"To me the glass is always half full and I'll keep on thinking positively."
Griffin, who began his career at Stoke, has made 42 starts in his three years at Portsmouth but the 28-year-old returned to the Potters on loan in September 2006.
