Long admits he could leave West Brom

The Republic of Ireland international has revealed that his future at the Hawthorns is still "up in the air" after a deadline-day move to Hull City fell through
Shane Long has revealed that he could leave West Brom should he receive the "right" opportunity.

The 26-year-old was set to join Hull City in a deadline-day move in September but the deal fell through and Long remained at the Hawthorns.

Long has since made five league appearances, including two from the bench, but admits his future is far from certain as his representatives continue negotiations for a new contract with the Baggies.

"It's still all up in the air. Nothing is concrete at the moment," Long told the Express and Star. "There was one offer in March or April and ever since then it's gone quiet, so I am biding my time and seeing what they come back with.

"I will let that take care of itself and try to get minutes on the pitch, score goals and get my way back into the starting XI."

The Republic of Ireland international insists he is content at West Brom but admits he would be forced to weigh up his options should the right offer arise.

"I don't want to go anywhere but time is running out on my contract and, if an opportunity comes along that is right for me and my family, I will have to take a look at it," he said.

"But as it stands I'm happy where I am, as a family we're happy where we are and I am enjoying life. I like playing for the manager [Steve Clarke] and I am just concentrating on my football and hoping the rest takes care of itself."
