Huddersfield Town striker Martin Paterson, currently on loan at Sky Bet League One side Bristol City, has expressed his desire publicly of wanting to leave the West Yorkshire side.
The 26-year-old joined The Robins on loan until the end of the season on Saturday and told The Bristol Post that he was unhappy at being sat on the bench at Huddersfield Town:
“I’ve been unhappy at not getting a chance, despite playing really well over the Christmas period and scoring a good amount of goals.”
Paterson has fallen down the pecking order at The Terriers since the signing of Nahki Wells from Bradford City in January but the former Burnley and Scunthorpe striker did have a purple patch at the start of the year scoring 5 goals in four games before picking up an injury.
The Northern Ireland international made 26 appearances scoring 6 goals since joining in August on a free transfer from Burnley. Paterson made similar comments after the recent Northern Ireland international friendly, he went on to tell The Bristol Post:
“It’s really disappointing, because I’m looking to play. You cannot be happy or comfortable with life when you are sat on the bench.
“I have a lot of respect for the club and for the manager (Mark Robins), but I’m not happy with not playing at Huddersfield.
“I want to play a game on a Saturday, that’s all. That’s why I’ve come out on loan and, if an opportunity arises because someone says ‘we fancy him’, then I just want to play football.
“Evidently, I don’t fit into the plans at Huddersfield and I have not for the past couple of months.
“If another manager likes me and says he wants me, then that can swing things.”
