Out-of-favour Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong has reiterated he could leave the club after growing increasingly frustrated by his lack of playing time.
The Cameroon international is reaching the end of his tether at Spurs after starting just one Premier League game this season and making a handful of substitute appearances.
Bassong has already hinted he could depart White Hart Lane if his playing opportunities fail to improve.
And with the 25-year-old currently Harry Redknapp's fifth-choice centre-back behind William Gallas, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King and Michael Dawson, the chances of him reviving his career in North London appear bleak.
"Whether I stay or go, a solution has to be found," Bassong told L'Equipe. "I need to play."
Bassong, who was a first-team regular when Spurs qualified for the UEFA Champions League in 2010, admits his tumble down Redknapp's pecking order came as a surprise.
"I wasn't expecting it. That's football. ... You can find yourself at the top or at the bottom just as quickly," he added.
"This obviously means you ask yourself questions."
