Milan Baros admits that he is unsure which path his career will take after this summer's European Championship.
The Czech Republic international is currently on loan at Portsmouth from Ligue 1 side Lyon, but that deal will expire at the end of the season.
With his opportunities back in France likely to be limited due to the emergence of Karim Benzema, a permanent move away from Stade Gerland looks likely.
The striker is refusing to let the confusion bother him though and insists that he remains fully focused on doing his best for Pompey and enjoying a successful Euro 2008 with his country.
"It is still too early to know what will happen," Baros told Sport.
"In January I wanted to leave Lyon because of Euro 2008 and I did not see me getting a chance in the starting line up due to the form of Karim Benzema.
"What will happen at the end of the season? We will see.
"Hopefully though, everything will be resolved after the European Championships."
Baros also revealed his disappointment that Czech national coach Karel Bruckner has announced his decision to retire at the end of the upcoming tournament in Austria and Switzerland.
"We have to respect his decision," said the striker.
"He has helped bring through a new generation of players and has been a big success.
"It will be very difficult to find a coach who can fully replace Mr Bruckner."
The former Liverpool and Aston Villa forward also insists that he is happy with life at Portsmouth despite regularly being forced to take a place on the bench when Harry Redknapp's side are on the road.
"The coach picks one striker for away games, so I expect it a bit," he said.
"Otherwise, I cannot complain at all. The only thing I am lacking is a few more goals."
