Carl Hoefkens admits he is weighing up his future at West Brom.
And with barely six months left on his current contract, the January transfer window is looming at a potentially critical time for the 30-year-old Albion defender.
"Yes, that is definitely a consideration," he acknowledged to The Sentinel, "because it is very important for me at this stage of my career to be playing and enjoying my football.
"All you can do is get yourself back in the team, but if that isn't happening it is difficult.
"It is very frustrating. I could understand it if the team was doing really well, but it is even more frustrating with the team not doing so well.
"But it is OK. Football is not always sunshine and you just have to keep your head down and keep trying to get back into the team."
