Cape Town - Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson concedes that he may have to leave Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The England international's current deal with the Reds runs until June 2015, after which he will be able to sign with another club as a free agent.

Despite the impending expiration of his contract, Johnson has not entered into talks with Liverpool over new terms, this despite the Merseyside club looking to tie down a host of players on improved deals.

“Of course I want to stay. But like I say I just worry about this week, this week and then worry about next week, next week. That is how I live my life," Johnson told the Liverpool Echo of his situation.

The 30-year-old returned to action against West Brom on Saturday after spending an exasperating six weeks on the sidelines.

“It’s been frustrating to watch because you want to be out there with the lads, and you want to be out there even more when it is not going too well," he said.

“The most important thing for me was getting fit and hoping the lads could pull us through while I was not able to help.

“It is difficult when you have bad periods but that’s football. It was always going to be a difficult start with all the changes and all the expectation but in football you have these ups and downs.”
