Chris Kirkland has admitted he would like to stay at West Brom.
Chris Kirkland has admitted he would like to stay at West Brom, but claims he will likely look elsewhere if The Baggies are relegated.
Former Coventry keeper Kirkland is on the lookout for a new club, having been informed by Liverpool that he has no future at Anfield.
Kirkland is on loan at West Brom and Baggies chief Bryan Robson has confirmed he would like to keep the shot-stopper in the Black Country.
However, they are strong candidates to suffer relegation and this could put pay to their hopes of retaining Kirkland.
Kirkland, who is currently sidelined with a hand injury, claims he will take stock of his options this summer.
"My agent has had a meeting with Liverpool and they have told me to find a new club in the summer," he told Sky Sports. "Hopefully somebody will take a shot and take me on in the summer.
"I am remaining positive. I have got an X-ray in two weeks and will hopefully get the all clear. I just can't wait to get back.
"The gaffer has said he would like to buy me, but it depends if we stay up.
"I have got to weigh my options up. But hopefully there will be a few at the end of the season and we can go from there.
"I want to play there (The Premiership). I have missed a lot of football and I want to get back.
"I love my training and playing, but I have not been able to do much in the last couple of years.
"Next year is a massive year for me, I have got to get back playing and I am confident I can get back to where I was before."
