Jerome still has three years left to run on the contract he penned last summer and insists he will not be looking to break that agreement despite enduring a disappointing debut campaign.
He said: "I have not thought about leaving, but being the age I am and in my prime, I want to play first-team football week in, week out.
"If it was a case of rotation fairly and on form, then I would probably be happy.
"But when you are just not getting a look-in regardless of how other people perform, or how the team performs, then obviously you have to ask yourself questions.
"I just want to play football. I love doing that and coming in with a smile on my face every day."
