Philipp Hofmann has not ruled out a move away from Brentford after struggling to get in the side in recent weeks.
The German has been a regular on the substitute's bench under Dean Smith given the form of Scott Hogan but even when the Bees are trailing, the head coach appears reluctant to throw the striker on when chasing the game.
Hofmann, like any footballer not playing regularly, is frustrated at a lack of game time but is only focused on Saturday's game with Norwich.
“There's a chance but it's a long time until January. We have a look at the next game,” the striker said.
Hofmann was given more time on the pitch than he's had in recent games and his presence gave Cardiff something different to think about.
While he may not have scored, he helped create space for Sullay Kaikai to grab his brace and rescue a point for Brentford.
He added: “It was an interesting game and for me, I was happy to get some minutes and I think we showed good character at the end.
“The second goal from Cardiff was unbelievable. We had chances before and we got the goal.”
Were Smith to alter his tactics and play Hofmann up front alongside Hogan, the striker believes the two can link up play well.
He explained: “Scott makes the runs and I'm the player who stays in the box – it's a good mix.”
