Newcastle United's Rolando Aarons has gone on record to reveal his frustration at not being given enough opportunities in the first team.
Aarons, who is still 21-years-old, has been at Newcastle for five years, after being released by Bristol City. However, despite making his Premier League debut over three seasons ago, chances have been hard to come by.
This season, Aarons has featured just once for Newcastle in the Carabao Cup loss to Nottingham Forest in August. Though having assisting the opening goal and then scoring later on, he is yet to play a single minute more for the senior side to date.
Speaking to the Newcastle Chronicle, the youngster said: "Every week I am not in the squad, I am more and more frustrated. Obviously, I want to be playing in the first-team.
"No offence to these lads [U21 teammates], but I don't want to be here."
After being asked about a potential transfer in January, the winger dismissed any claims of transfer talk, and instead remained grounded in his response.
"I just think about working in training. I don't look too far ahead - it's too early," he added. "For all you know, I might be playing against Man United [on Saturday]. I'm not sure yet.
