Simon Cox has expressed his desire to move on from West Brom if he isn't given more chances in the first-team by manager Roy Hodgson.
The Baggies striker is ready to consider either a permanent switch away from the Hawthorns or a temporary exit before the end of this month's transfer window, if his situation doesn't change quickly.
Cox is growing frustrated after only starting two Premier League games during the 2011/12 campaign including Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Tottenham.
The Republic of Ireland international has slipped down the pecking order following the arrival of Shane Long - currently sidelined with a groin injury - plus the recall of Marc Antoine-Fortune from a loan spell at Doncaster.
When asked about his thoughts on his future and the possibility of a full transfer away from Albion, he said: "I don't know. If someone comes in to buy me and it's the right price, and the chairman and manager say 'yes' then it's out of my hands.
"If they say 'no' and a loan is the preferred option, then that's the sort of road we might have to go down. It's a decision we're going to have to make as a club and myself and my family in the next couple of weeks."
