Aleksandar Mitrovic admits that he is tired of not getting first-team football at Newcastle United and suggests that he is ready to leave the club.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has revealed that he is prepared to quit Newcastle United due to his lack of game time at the club.

The 23-year-old has made only six appearances in the Premier League for Rafael Benitez's side this campaign.

With Dwight Gayle, Joselu and Ayoze Perez seemingly ahead of Mitrovic in the frontline pecking order, the Serbia international opened up on his future to Serbian daily Zurna.

"I persistently waited for the chance over the past months and I did not get it," Mitrovic said in the interview.

"I'm sorry – after all, I loved Newcastle, but it's time for me to look more to myself, to find the best solution for my career.

"I tried to be honest with myself and my teammates at every training and match. And the fact that I did not get a chance is simply not up to me.

"I never felt better. I'm physically in flawless form. I cannot wait to play. The most important thing is to find a club and finally get a chance in the field."

Mitrovic has made 72 appearances for Newcastle since his 2015 move from Anderlecht, scoring 17 goals and registering 10 assists for the Magpies.
