Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair admits he is frustrated at the amount of playing time he has received in recent seasons and could seek an exit in January.
The former Swansea City winger has made just three starts in his two years with Man City after joining from £6.2million in 2012.
He was sidelined for a long period in his first season after undergoing surgery on a blood clot in his shoulder but has failed to break back into the first-team setup.
Under Manuel Pellegrini the 25-year-old is yet to make a Premier League start and was sent out on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, making eight league appearances at The Hawthorns.
Sinclair has previously been linked with QPR and a return to Swansea and the England international admits he would like to leave for more playing time when the transfer window reopens.
“It’s been very frustrating, for the last couple of years I have kept my head and tried to do as well as I can in training,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.
“Hopefully I will get the chance I am looking for. At this moment in time it is hard for me to get a game, but all I can do is maybe re-evaluate in January and go from there.
“I hear loads of speculation but at the moment nothing is concrete. I don’t feel like I have had the best of chances. I just want to get out there and show people why City bought me. I haven’t really had that sort of opportunity.”
Man City face Sinclair’s old club Swansea at the Etihad on Saturday and are priced at 1.38 to win.
