Cape Town - Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic admits he is running out of patience as he awaits more game time under manager Rafael Benitez.

The Serbia international has struggled to make an impression at the Magpies this season, making only four appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals.

The 23-year-old has hinted that he may be looking to move on in January as he targets more game time ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where he hopes to play a big role for Serbia.

“I’m patient, but we will see,” said Mitrovic, according to the Northern Echo.

“My patience is almost to the end, so we will see. I want to play. I want to be on the pitch.

“I see where I am already. I’ve said already that I’m patient, but we will see. I don’t know what to say. I’m here, and we'll see what's happening.”

Mitrovic was also considered a fringe player at Newcastle last season, starting only 11 games as they won the Championship.
