Bordeaux midfielder Stephane Dalmat believes he will leave the club at the end of the current campaign.
Dalmat joined Les Girondins on a free transfer last summer after his contract with Racing Santander was cancelled.
The former Tottenham player has not, however, featured in Bordeaux coach Ricardo's plans since December and has made just three appearances for the club, leaving him increasingly fed-up with the situation.
"I am angry to be on the bench and to not be playing anymore but I won't ask the coach why, it is not in my nature," Dalmat told 20Minutes.
"I have already experienced this situation before. If I don't say anything, people will think that I don't care, if I speak, people will say I am a troublemaker.
"During the January transfer window I had offers from some good foreign clubs. My management told me to accept it but leaving Bordeaux after six months would have been too easy.
"I consider that I will leave at the end of the season because at the moment there aren't any discussions with the directors to extend my contract. I have to think about my future."
