Bristol Rovers striker Darryl Duffy admits he still does not know where he will be playing next season, after a frustrating campaign at the Memorial Stadium.
The 26-year-old struggled to nail down a regular place in the first-team with the Pirates last season and opted to join League One rivals Carlisle United on loan in search of regular action.
A torn hamstring restricted him to just eight appearances for the Cumbrians, but he seemed to make a lasting impression there with Carlisle manager Greg Abbott hinting that he would like to bring the Scotsman back permanently during the summer.
However, the former Hull City forward told skysports.com that the situation remains rather hazy at the moment.
"It is still a bit unclear really where my future lies, but I still have another year left on my contract at Bristol Rovers, so unless someone comes in for me I will be there next season," said Duffy.
"The amount of game time I got at Bristol Rovers was one of the main reasons I went to Carlisle on loan and I really enjoyed my time there, despite picking up a hamstring injury there.
"I was in and out of the side when I returned to Rovers though and that was disappointing because I wanted to end the season strongly and it is difficult to gain some momentum when you are in and out of the starting eleven.
"You never know what is going to happen in the summer transfer window, but at the moment I haven't heard from either Bristol Rovers or any other club about next season."
