QPR midfielder Lee cook does not expect to be playing with the West London club next season.
The 29-year old is out of favour under Neil Warnock at Loftus Road and is hoping to seal a short-term loan switch away from the club so he can get some first team football.
Cook's contract expires at the end of the season and he is resigned to the fact that he is unlikely to be wearing the blue and white hoops of the R's in the future.
"I can't really see me coming back to QPR and playing regularly again to be honest because I'm training back there now, but I can't play any first-team games as I'm not in the 25-man squad," he told skysports.com.
"If I go back there in January on the back of a good loan spell in the Championship then you never know and they might have to sit up and take notice, but all I need to do is look after my career.
"My contract is up next June, so it is important for me to go out on loan and show people what I can do.
"I have missed playing regular football, but I need to be patient and wait for the right move because I've had options to go certain places."
