Lee Hendrie is worried that he has played his final match for Aston Villa.
The former England international midfield player does not expect to be with the club next season, bringing to an end a 12-year spell at Villa Park.
In his ideal world, Hendrie would stay with Villa for life, but the reality is that he does not fit into the plans of David O'Leary, the manager, and will therefore seek a new club.

Hendrie emerged as a late substitute during the match against Sunderland last Sunday. If it is the end, it was hardly a fitting conclusion.
"It could have been my last game. I don't know exactly what is going on," said Hendrie. "I'll just have to see what is going on over the summer really. I've got a year left. I've spoken to the manager before and he said that if someone did come in, he would help me out.
"That's pretty much it. I haven't had too many conversations with the gaffer. So it's pretty much a case of wait and see. I couldn't even say if I will be here next season.
"At the moment I have got to be honest and say that I don't want to go through a whole season like I did this year because it was a wasted season. If it is going to be the same sort of season, I am going to have to move on. That's unfortunate and it is not something that I want to do.
"I have said all along that I want to finish my career here. It would be fantastic to do that, but things don't always work out that way.
"I wasn't playing even going back to pre-season when we were away [in Sweden]. That forced me into playing for the reserves and at Tamworth when I was sent off.
"That was frustrating because I wanted to give myself every possible chance of starting this season, but I got sent off which was down to a number of things.
"I can't look back, though. I need to look forward and be positive about what is going to happen next season, and hopefully it is all good.
"If it [the match against Sunderland] is my swansong, that would be sad," he added. "I'd have loved to have had half an hour and tried to have got a goal. If I'd have had a chance on Sunday I would have tried to have banged one in.
"I hope it's not over. I would hate to go out on that note. But in the same respects, if I have to. I have to. I'd like to thank everyone who has backed me and stood by me.
"I've always been up and down [with the fans] but for them to be so upbeat at the end was absolutely amazing."
