The fullback accepts he has little future on Tyneside.
"If I'm honest I'll probably have to go somewhere else. Alan Pardew has said he's been impressed with me in training but I'm still young so going out on loan could be a good thing for me.
"I don't want to be sitting doing nothing, I'm not like that. I got the taste for it again on Saturday night and all I want to do now is be back playing."
