Freddy Eastwood has admitted that he will seek a move away from Wolves should his first-team opportunities fail to improve.
Eastwood has struggled to hold down a regular place in Mick McCarthy's starting XI since his £1.5million switch from Southend last summer.
The 24-year-old striker has not started a game since Boxing Day, and has failed to play consecutive matches since September.
Eastwood insists that a move away from Molineux is the 'last thing' he wants, but concedes that he will go in search for first-team football if he does not get a consistent run in the team between now and the end of the season.
"There's no change for me, I'm still on the bench," he told the Birmingham Mail.
"Kevin (Kyle) has come in and I think we've got eight strikers now so there's plenty of competition.
"We've got a good squad here and there's competition all over the park so the manager has tough decisions everywhere.
"I've just got to keep my head up and keep going, I don't really want to go anywhere.
"I'm a Wolves player and I came here to play football which I started off doing but now I'm not.
"From now until the end of the season there's 15 league games left and if I'm not getting a run, and teams are coming in for me, I need to play football.
"I don't want to leave, it's the last thing I want to do.
"I've come here to play for Wolves and I want to stay at Wolves without a doubt.
"Having said that I'm at the age now where I want to play football and I think I'm a good enough player to play and score goals in this league."
