The 25-year-old has found himself playing mostly at left-back this season despite admitting his preferred position is right-back.
The former Sheffield United man has seen Kyle Walker block his path to the right-back spot and Naughton concedes he may have to move on so that he can play reguarly in his preferred position
Naughton told the Daily Mirror: "I am 25 and there is a stage that you reach when you think, 'Well, am I going to be No 1?'
"That is what I am looking for. I want to be playing every single week. I want to be playing regularly.
"I am not sure what is going to happen, but if I can't hold down a first-team spot then I do have to look elsewhere.
"I am not going to lie - I am a right-back. That is the position I want to play in, but it has been difficult with Kyle Walker doing so well."
@ryanssmile10 - he has been given numerous chances in the league, europe and the cups, and not once has he looked anything other than utterly incompetent. He cannot control the ball, tackle, track runners, pass or indeed do many of the basic skills you'd expect of a premier league footballer, and he has constantly used the excuse of lack of opportunities despite the fact that it is his technique which is clearly fundamentally bobbins rather than affected by rustiness.- gtbl
