Birmingham City midfielder Lee Bowyer said he may leave the club this summer despite the likelihood of him being offered a new one-year deal to stay at St Andrews.

The 34-year-old has nailed down a regular starting place in Alex McLeish's side during the second half of the season and said he had been told by the Blues manager he would be offered a new contract.

However, today Bowyer said he plans to wait for any other possible offers before deciding on his future.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I'm going to weigh up the options in the summer.

"I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I'm going to weigh up the options in the summer," Bowyer said. "At the moment the manager has said to me the club are going to be offering me another year.

"Whether that happens or not, I don't know. They were meant to give me another year last summer. I'll be on a free now and I'll see what options I get and go from there."

The former Leeds United, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Charlton Athletic midfielder admitted he had been irked at being left on the bench for the early part of the season. "I had a spell here this season when I wasn't playing and I wasn't happy."
