Thomas Sorensen is keeping his future options open as keeper at Stoke.
The former Denmark stopper wants to play regularly but accepts that he will have to be patient with current custodian Asmir Begovic performing well between the posts.
"Right now, it is of course a frustrating situation for me." Sorensen told TV2 Sporten.
"The side is playing well and we are not conceding many goals. Of course, that makes it very hard for me.
"I don't want to sit on the bench the remaining time of my contract, but I believe they know that."
The 36 year old has previously declared that he would like to play on for another four years before retiring and has been linked with a move back to Denmark.
"I don't want to exclude anything, it depends what the eventual offer looks like," he added.
"In that situation, I also have to think about my family."
