Shane Long admits that he may have to consider leaving West Bromwich Albion due to a stall in contract talks.

West Bromwich Albion forward Shane Long has admitted that he may need to look for a new club as his future at The Hawthorns continues to hang in the balance.

The 26-year-old, who was close to completing a deadline-day move to Hull City in the summer, has insisted that he would prefer to stay put with the Baggies.

However, due to contract negotiations being put on hold, Long has claimed that he will consider his options.

"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," Long told the Express & Star.

"But as it stands I'm happy where I am, as a family we're happy where we are and I am enjoying life."

Long joined the Baggies from Reading in 2011.
