Javan Vidal is hoping to go out on loan again after struggling to establish himself at Manchester City. The 21-year-old, who can also operate in midfield, spent a stint with Championship club Derby last season.
And after finding first-team chances restricted at Eastlands, the full-back is hoping to impress City manager Roberto Mancini by plying his trade elsewhere.
"If the chance came to break into the side at Man City then I would look to grasp the opportunity with both hands," Vidal told skysports.com.
"But I reckon I will need to go out on loan first to catch the manager's eye because he has already set out his team how he wants it.
"I've had a few clubs show an interest in taking me on loan over the summer, but I am at a stage where I definitely need to be playing games.
"So, it is important for me to choose the right club in the sense that I will have a good chance of playing regularly and they play the brand of football which suits my game too."
With the loan window open, Football League clubs are currently looking to strengthen their squads, and Vidal is hoping to attract interest.
He added: "This is the time when most Football League clubs will be looking to bring loan players in to bolster their squads, with injuries and suspensions causing managers to take stock of what they have got and where they need to improve."
