Southampton full-back Rudi Skacel doubts whether he will be at the Championship club next season.
The Czech Republic midfielder, who has found himself at left-back for The Saints this term, is out of contract at St Mary's this summer.
Southampton are currently second-from-bottom in the table and Skacel believes Jan Poortvliet often fields starting XIs containing too many youngsters.
When asked what his future is at Southampton he told deniksport.cz: "Honestly, I don't know.
Reserves to first team
"Last summer they told me that if I didn't leave I wouldn't be playing. And then at one point they moved me from the reserves to the first team.
"I have played in 17 games in a row. I don't know what kind of role is that.
"I am one of the three older players who were in the team two years ago when Southampton were battling for promotion.
"There is plenty of talented and skilful lads in the team but if nine are picked into the starting line-up then that's too many.
"Suddenly they wanted me to play, so I have been playing. It is clear that we have a big task ahead of us as it will be a fight until the last round."
Open to offers
Skacel has conceded that if he receives an offer anytime soon, whether it is in January or at the end of the season, he would like to leave the club for a new challenge.
"We will see what happens," he continued. "If there is an offer, then I would like to experience something new. If there is any interesting option for me, then I will go.
"It is too early to return home. I am still young and would like to play in a high-quality European league."
