Newcastle midfielder Geremi has told skysports.com that he could be ready to leave St James' Park in search of regular first-team football.
The former Real Madrid, Chelsea and Middlesbrough man has not started a match under Magpies boss Joe Kinnear since the 2-2 home draw with Stoke City on 6th December.
Geremi, who is under contract until summer 2010 and captained the club for a stint at the start of the 2007/08 campaign, has made just 12 appearances all season.
The versatile Cameroon international, who is equally comfortable at right-back, has been linked with Turkish giants Besiktas or a January switch to France.
Geremi, 30, told skysports.com: "I want to be involved on the football field. I am nearing the end of my career and I don't want to sit on the bench.
"I heard there is a bid for me from a club in Europe but I am waiting to decide what to do.
"To be honest, I want to play. If not, we will have to take a decision to satisfy everyone."
