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.
French club Monaco are interested in the young Switzerland international, who is contracted to City until 2011, and it is thought a fee of up to 3million Euros would be enough to lure Fernandes away.
"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."
Fernandes has also been linked with City's Premier League neighbours Bolton, along with Scottish giants Celtic and German outfit Hamburg.
