MICHAEL Spillane admits he's willing to go out on loan in a bid to get regular first-team football.
The Brentford defender has made just one substitute's appearance under Uwe Rosler , and has failed to even make the bench most weeks.
And with his contract up in the summer, the Irishman is keen to kick-start his career.
He said: “It's frustrating not being involved. I want to play football and if I'm not doing that here I need to be doing that elsewhere for the benefit of everyone involved.
“I'm in the last year of my contract so I need to start playing. We'll have to see what happens in the next few weeks.”
Spillane admits he's been hampered by his utility man tag, which has seen him play at centre-back, right-back and right-wing since his switch from Norwich City in 2010.
But the 22-year-old wants to nail down a spot in defence – wherever he ends up.
He added: “It's been a problem that I haven't been able to nail down a position, but I think as I get older I'll be a centre-back.
“I've played a lot of games there for Norwich in the Championship.
“I think people think I take liberties when I play there, but I play a more no-nonsense role.”
