Cape Town - Scott Sinclair is set to re-evaluate his future at Manchester City during the January transfer window after admitting he misses "playing football", reports Football411.

The 25-year-old winger arrived at Eastlands in 2012 from Premier League rivals Swansea, but has hardly featured for City over the past two seasons.

His last start for the English champions came against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League in December 2012, while Sinclair has made just two appearances this term.

The former Chelsea player concedes his career hasn't panned out as he'd hoped and will take stock of the situation in the New Year as he is desperate for regular first-team football.

He told Sky Sports: "It has been very frustrating for the last couple of years. I have tried to do as well as I can in training and hope to get a chance but at this moment in time it is hard for me to get a game.

"There are some world-class players here so I can't do much more than keep working hard in training. I don't feel I've had the best of chances; I just want to get out there and show why City bought me but I've not had that opportunity.

"I made the decision (to move to City) and I have to deal with it, I can't look back and say it was a mistake but the only thing I do miss is playing football.

"I made the decision to come to City and fight it out with all the big players and it hasn't really worked out this far. All I can do is re-evaluate in January and go from there."
