Stoke striker Jerome lashes out at 'unfair' treatment
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."
