Mee explains frustration for younger player's at Man City

Burnley's on-loan defender Ben Mee says being at Manchester City can be frustrating for younger players. The England Under-21 international has joined the Championship club on a season-long loan in a bid for first-team football.

He told BBC Radio Lancashire: "It's a frustrating being around the first team but never getting the chance to show what you can do.

"I've got two more years on my contract at City, but I don't know what's going to happen."

Mee added: "I'm going to be 22 by the time this season finishes and I've been at City a long time.

"It's up to them what they plan on doing but I don't think they're going to stop buying players anytime soon."

Mee is a product of Manchester City's academy but has made just one senior appearance, in 2010.

"It's been like that for a couple of years but you've got to take those knocks and come back stronger.

"You've got to try and do your best like I did last year and hopefully will do this year."
