Gelson looking to move

Gelson Fernandes has confirmed he is considering a move away from Manchester City at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old midfielder has made just three Premier League starts this term, with a further 11 league appearances from the bench, and he is frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities under Mark Hughes.

"We will have to see at the end of the season," he told skysports.com."I'm not a regular in the City team and I'm really not happy about that, and also about my own form. "Monaco is not the only team interested. I like Man City but I need to think about my playing time as well so we will see at the end of the season."

He really has struggled this season after featuring heavily in his debut season with us. Injuries have not helped of course, and as a young player he does have plenty of upside but you do sense the players brought in this season in a similar role (Kompany and de Jong) will take some shifting from the line-up.

Coupled with the prospect of further (quality) additions in that area it does seem likely that opportunities will become even more limited for him.
