Sunderland keeper Keiren Westwood has first-team football as his priority.
The Republic of Ireland keeper has been limited to just 13 appearances since joining from Coventry in July 2011, by the form and fitness of Simon Mignolet.
"For the sake of my career, I have to play," Westwood told BBC Newcastle.
"I love it here [at Sunderland], it's great. It's a fantastic club to be at and I couldn't have gone to much better, but I have to play football - I didn't play most of last season.
"It's not a club I want to leave, I've a lot of friends here, I love it and hopefully I can be playing."
