Sunderland striker Daryl Murphy is happy to fight for his place on Wearside but admits his future is up in the air.
The 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international has been linked with a move away from the Stadium of Light during the January transfer window with Coca-Cola Championship strugglers QPR said to be hot on his trail.
Murphy contributed the nerve-settling third goal to his side's priceless 3-1 win over Bolton on Saturday after coming off the bench.
He later revealed he wants to stay at the club, but knows his situation could change over the next few weeks.
Asked if he is looking for a move away, Murphy said: "Not at all.
"I'm a Sunderland player and I have got a good few years on my contract here. But we will have to wait and see.
"Right now, I just want to enjoy the goal and a big win for the team."
Murphy was signed by former boss Mick McCarthy from Waterford for £125,000 in June 2005 and later handed a long-term contract which ties him to the club until 2011. He has started six Barclays Premier League games this season and appeared in as many more as a substitute.
However, he has been played as a wide midfielder at times and Saturday's injury-time strike was his first goal of the season....
Murphy said: "We have got to learn how to kill teams off.
"We were 2-0 up and cruising really, but conceded a bad goal and Bolton put us under a lot of pressure.
"We did not really do ourselves any favours in the second half.
It was always going to be a battle and there were spells in the second half when it was 100mph.
"It would have been nice if the third goal had come sooner, but I am pleased we got it and delighted I am playing a part.
"Obviously, I would like a run of games, but that is down to the manager." Sporting Life

Mirror - A cheap Brill for Rangers
Big-SPENDING QPR are trying to sign keeper Dean Brill from cash-strapped Luton - and want to do a deal with their administrators this week.
Rangers are keen on highly-rated Brill (above), but want him on the cheap as the Kenilworth Road crisis club try to slash their debts.
Hungarian playmaker Akos Buzsaky, 25, has penned a £500,000 two-and-a-half-year deal to become QPR's first permanent signing of their mega-rich F1 regime, having been on loan from Plymouth.
With motor - racing moguls Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore now the top men at Loftus Road, and steel billionaire Lakshmi Mittal adding extra financial muscle, many new faces are set to join in the next month.
Manchester United starlet Kieran Lee has joined on loan and buys in are expected to include Watford's Gavin Mahon and Fitz Hall from Wigan. Mirror

Aidy's warning to big-spending Rangers as they line up Connolly, Ephraim and Buzsaky

Queens Park Rangers have been warned that spending millions of pounds on new players during the transfer window will not guarantee them success.
The club will today agree their fifth deal in four days and sources suggest that number could double by the end of next month.
Midfielder Gavin Mahon is set for a £300,000 move from Watford as Rangers manager Luigi De Canio begins a spending spree backed by mega-rich investors the Mittal family, Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore.
Rangers also have agreed to sign Arsenal centre half Matt Connolly for £1million, winger Hogan Ephraim from West Ham for £800,000 and Plymouth midfielder Akos Buzsaky for £500,000.
Manchester United right-back Kieran Lee has joined on a six-month loan deal while other targets include the Birmingham pair Martin Taylor and Rowan Vine, Wigan centre-back Fitz Hall and Argentina-based midfielder Sebastian Rusculleda.
But Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd, whose side were beaten 4-2 by Rangers on Saturday, insists money cannot guarantee success in the Championship.
He said: "I don't envy the money QPR have come into. But it can sometimes cause as many problems as it solves."
Charlton also want to add to their squad with Peterborough's Aaron McLean among their targets. This is London

Sky Sport/Peter O'Rourke - Hall Fitz bill for Rangers
Rangers hope to beat Black Cats to defender

Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers are in talks with Wigan defender Fitz Hall.
Big-spending Rangers are believed to have had a bid accepted by Wigan for the giant defender.
Rangers boss Luigi de Canio is eager to bolster his squad in the January transfer window and has made defensive reinforcements his top priority.
Hall has fallen down the pecking order at Wigan this season and has made just one substitute appearance in the Premier League this term.
Sunderland are also interested in the former Crystal Palace ace, but QPR are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by tying up a move in the next few days. Sky
