Petrov eyes move away from Manchester City

Martin Petrov has told the Bulgarian media he wants to quit Manchester City this summer in order to secure first-team football.

Petrov is on international duty with Bulgaria ahead of the friendly with Latvia, and spoke to reporters at the national team's training camp.

"I don't see City depending too much on me this year, at least from what I have seen from the pre-season friendlies so far,'' Petrov said in Dnevnik. "No footballer is content with polishing the bench and I am no exception.''

The left winger now plans to have talks with boss Mark Hughes on his return from international duty.

Petrov starred for City under Sven-Goran Eriksson after joining from Atletico Madrid in 2007, but a serious knee injury suffered on international duty at the start of last season left him with little opportunity to impress Hughes, who used Robinho in midfield last season and has since added Gareth Barry.

The 30-year-old went on to claim several clubs have expressed an interest in his signature.

"There were several inquiries but no offers as of yet,'' he said.
