Mark Wright insists his days are numbered at Bristol Rovers and is hoping to impress potential admirers whilst on loan at Shrewsbury.
The 28-year-old, who has joined the League Two club on loan until January, has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Memorial Stadium and was transfer-listed by the Pirates over the summer.
He admits that the chance to go out on loan to Shrewsbury has given him the opportunity to show what he can do after being frozen out of the side last season.
"I've come here for six months to start off with so that I can get back to enjoying my football again because it went a bit stale at Bristol Rovers," Wright told skysports.com.
"I wasn't getting a look-in there, so I jumped at the chance to go out on loan and I am just focused on doing well for Shrewsbury until January and then we will assess the situation.
"My contract is up at the end of the season with Bristol Rovers anyway, so anything can happen at the moment.
"I don't think I will be going back to Bristol Rovers any time soon because I wasn't playing any games there in the first place.
"I believe that my future lies elsewhere when my contract expires at the end of the season, so this is a chance for me to put myself in the shop window for everyone else to see what I can do.
"Hopefully I can impress a few people, including those here at Shrewsbury, and get the chance to find a new club early doors."
