Czech striker Roman Bednar insists he will not return to West Brom after his loan spell at Leicester expires.
Bednar agreed a switch to the Walkers Stadium on Wednesday and has joined the Championship outfit until January.
The 27-year-old believes that he has lost the support of Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo and will therefore not make a Hawthorns comeback.
"Once the (West Brom) manager let me go, my vision is not to return to West Bromwich. I don't feel confidence in me from him anymore," he told CTK.
"At the moment I just want to be happy and play regularly. I think I have made the right decision.
"This loan has been settled so that I don't warm the bench. I will be doing my best and believe I will gain ground at Leicester."
The Foxes are currently 17th the Championship but Bednar believes Sven-Goran Eriksson's side are capable of better things.
"The team is of a high quality and, in my opinion, should be somewhere else in the table," he added.
On his Swedish manager, he remarked: "I have decided for Leicester not only because of the manager but also because it takes me just 45 minutes to get there from my home, so I don't need to move.
"In the worst case I will be spending the nights ahead of games in hotel.
"He is a high-quality manager who has a great record of teams he has coached previously.
"After a long time, I enjoyed a training session with a smile on my face."
Bednar will have stern competition with Darius Vassell, Martyn Waghorn, Matty Fryatt and Steve Howard also attacking options.
He said: "I know all of them. I consider them high-quality forwards but am not afraid of competition.
"It's good for me but, as I said before, I've not moved to Leicester to just warm the bench."
