Scott Allan seems unlikely to return to Pompey for a third loan spell after being non-commital on his future as he headed back to The Hawthorns.
The midfielder has spent the past two months at Fratton Park but has not made the impression he had when first on loan here in the latter stages of last season.
He is keen to know where his future lies and appears fed up with being shipped around to different clubs.
But there was no mention of any possible return to Pompey when asked what's next after the 2-0 defeat at Walsall on Friday night.
Allan told the Pompey website: 'I go back to West Brom on Monday, so we will see what the future brings. I just want to keep my head down and get some stability.
'I’ve been here, there and everywhere over the last year so I want to get settled and let my football do the talking.'
Allan urged his Fratton team-mates to keep battling for results - and stop gifting the lead to their opponents.
He added: 'We can’t hand the opposition a 2-0 lead as easily as we did and expect to get anything from the game. When we keep things tight as we did for the first 30 minutes – and the first hour at Swindon – we also need to make chances for ourselves, rather than let the other team take the initiative.
'Getting the first goal is crucial and that has been a problem for us for quite a while now. We haven’t been able to do it enough and it’s always difficult when you’re having to chase games.
'We can’t keep starting games the way we have been otherwise we are always going to get punished. But I think there is enough ability in the squad to ensure that we should be winning games.'
Pompey host Notts County next Saturday knowing it will be tough to end their 14-game winless run against a side who have already beaten them twice this season - in the league at Meadow Lane and in the FA Cup at Fratton.
