Port Vale captain Doug Loft says he has yet to decide whether to take legal action over the facial injury which ended his season.
Loft was involved in a training ground altercation with team-mate Daniel Jones, who has since been sacked by the club.
The 27-year-old suffered several facial injuries, including a broken cheekbone.
"There's a chance (of legal proceedings) but I just want to get my face right," Loft told Sky Sports News.
"Then I will go away and talk with my family and decide about my future.
"I have never had a problem with Jonesy and he has never had one with me, as far as I know.
"We went into a tackle and as I was getting up off the floor he hit me.
"I fell backwards and sat on the floor, the gaffer sent him in and I went to hospital for X-rays. He texted me on the day and said sorry, that was it."
The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and said he was frustrated at missing the chance to impress potential suitors.
"At the minute I am angry," added Loft.
"I have been playing really well and I was getting a lot of interest and I knew that people were watching me.
"I am annoyed and upset that I will miss the rest of the season."
