Jonathan Greening insists his recent transfer request does not mean he is desperate to leave West Brom.
The 30-year-old midfielder has been the subject of much interest from Premier League outfit Fulham in recent weeks, with the Cottagers seeing an initial approach knocked back by the Baggies.
Prior to that snub, Greening had informed West Brom of his desire to leave should a suitable offer be forthcoming.
He maintains that situation has not changed and has made it clear that he will not be pushing for a departure in the coming weeks should an acceptable bid fail to materialise.
"I had a very amicable meeting with chairman Jeremy Peace, sporting & technical director Dan Ashworth and head coach Roberto Di Matteo last week, at which I handed in a transfer request," Greening told the club's official website.
"I explained that, at my age, I want to be playing in the Premier League because I may not get too many more chances.
"The club agreed that if an acceptable offer comes in for me, they will let me talk to the bidding club.
"But I made it clear to the chairman that I in no way want to rock the boat and that if a suitable offer doesn't come in for me, I'll be more than happy to knuckle down, fight for my place and try and get this club back in the top flight.
"I really want to clear this up because some of the things that were written in the media yesterday, about me being 'furious' with the club, and that the situation had gone 'sour', are just not true.
"It has also been wrongly reported that I have rejected the club's contract offer.
"I've had five great years here and the club has been brilliant to me. If I do leave, I want it to be in the right way.
"If I don't, I'll keep giving my all every time I pull on an Albion shirt."
