He said: â€śIâ€™d still like to speak to Chelsea and see what the new manager is saying â€“ but after five years going on loan itâ€™s probably time to get out.
â€śThe situation at Chelsea is Âunderstandable because youâ€™ve got so many good players, but itâ€™s getting to the stage where Iâ€™m a bit old to be the reserve player or the Âyoungster breaking through.
â€śIâ€™ve loved going out on loan. It has given me experiences I could never have had if Iâ€™d just been sitting in the reserves, but now I want to be settled in a team I can call my own.
â€śI want to feel the consequences of defeat, and what it means to win in my own team.â€ť
Everton boss David Moyes, Swansea chief Brendan Rodgers and Bolton gaffer Owen Coyle are also Âmonitoring his situation.
