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 Clarets on a season-long loan in a bid for first-team football.
The 21-year-old 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 year's on my contract at City, but I don't know what's going to happen."
Mee, who became Burnley's first summer signing, 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."
But he impressed during a loan spell at Leicester last season, making 15 appearances.
"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."
Mee has been joined by his Manchester City team-mate Kieran Trippier who has also agreed a 12- month loan move to Turf Moor
