Birmingham midfielder Lee Bowyer has been told that he will not be offered a new contract at St Andrews and is set to leave in the summer.
The 34-year-old was one of the club's Carling Cup final heroes against Arsenal at the weekend, but his current deal expires at the end of the season.
Bowyer, who joined Birmingham from West Ham two years ago, would like to stay, however, Alex McLeish is not preparing an extension.
When asked if he was to be offered a new contract, the former Leeds star said: "I think at the moment the club have said, 'no'.
"That is not going to happen so I'll be looking elsewhere.
"I wanted to stay anyway, irrespective of what happened at Wembley.
"They might change their mind and keep me on, you never know. But that is up to the club.
"It is out of my hands. All I can do is try to put on performances."
Bowyer believes he is still good enough to play in the Premier League, as he added: "I feel good. I'm 34. Because of your age, people still question whether you can still get box to box, if you can still do what you used to do.
"But I think I showed against Arsenal that I obviously can."
