Sunderland midfielder Adam Reed admits that he will seek pastures new at the end of the season.

Sunderland midfielder Adam Reed has admitted that he is 'likely' to depart the Premier League outfit at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on loan at Portsmouth, will be out of contract at the Black Cats when his current deal expires in the summer.

Reed told the Sunderland Echo: "My contract is up in the summer and I've been out on loan a lot, so I've played quite a few league games now. But then you go back and you don't get an opportunity - so it gets a bit frustrating.

"I know I will have to look at my future and I will find out sooner rather than later whether they will offer me a contract or whether I want to find another club and play first-team football.

"I've been there a long time and it will be hard to make that decision if I decide to leave. But every player wants to play first-team football once you've had that taste. There is nothing like league football and if I am meant to play at the highest level, I will get there."

Reed has yet to make a single first-team appearance for Sunderland.
