"There are few better clubs to be at than Newcastle United and I love the place to bits, but I cannot risk seeing my career suffer by not playing regular first-team football.

"I signed a three-year contract last summer on the basis that I would be in the first team and that has not happened.

"That's no good to me and I may have to leave as a result."
