On-loan QPR striker Ishmael Miller insists he is not worried about where he will be plying his trade next season.
The 24-year-old has seen his career hampered by injury in recent campaigns, but scored his first goal in almost a year for Neil Warnock's side against Leicester earlier this month.
With Rangers closing on promotion to the Premier League this term, while parent club West Brom battle to beat the top-flight drop, Miller says he is happy to remain at Loftus Road or return to the Baggies.
He told skysports.com: "I've had a lot of injuries, which have stalled my career back at West Brom a little and I just needed something to inject a bit of confidence back in my game.
"It was nice to get the phone call from Neil Warnock and he is a great guy at a great club, so I couldn't really say no to be fair.
"West Brom have got a great squad there, with a new manager in place since I left, but I was happy there and I am happy here, so I'm not sure what will happen this summer.
"They could change divisions this summer, but hopefully West Brom can stay up and be joined by QPR next season.
"I'm not really thinking about my long-term future now because I'm just happy to be playing games again.
"I'm not putting any pressure on either club to make a decision and I will be happy to be playing at either club next season."
Miller insists staying fit is his top priority as he looks to close the door on his injury struggles.
He added: "I'm just hoping that I stay injury free and have a good end to the season here, with promotion at the end of it because I've had a bad couple of years.
"I'm over them now and hopefully I can play my football without picking up any major injuries because I've had enough of them recently.
"Obviously, there will be the odd niggle here and there, but as long as I stay away from the long-term injuries I'll be happy.
"It was difficult to get myself going and in the team back at West Brom because when you are injured for a long period of time you tend to fall off the radar, so this opportunity was great for me."
