Emile Heskey has admitted he will consider leaving Aston Villa in January in a bid to secure his place in the England squad for next summer's World Cup.
The striker, who only joined Villa from Wigan at the start of the year, has started just one Premier League match this season.
"I'm happy to be playing for England and, obviously, not playing at club level is difficult," he said in the Guardian. "It's something I will have to look at when I get back and try to address it."
He played for England in their defeat in Ukraine on Saturday, though, and currently appears to be Fabio Capello's favoured partner for Wayne Rooney.
But the former Liverpool forward is aware his lack of games for his club could harm his chances of getting picked in the squad for South Africa.
Asked whether that meant he would seek a move in the winter transfer window, Heskey said: "That's what I mean. I will have to sit down and think about my next move. I don't know whether I can get a World Cup place if I'm not playing for Villa.
"The manager (Capello) hasn't really spoken to me about it. I just have to keep performing well in training and keep going. But you always wonder about those kind of things, whether it will affect my chances. I will just have to try to address it when the time is right."
