Assulin on the move

By Simon Griver, November 17, 2011

Manchester City midfielder Gai Assulin has spoken of his plans to drop down to the Championship in the new year.

The Israeli starlet has acknowledged he has little chance of breaking into City's first team squad that currently tops the Premier Division.

"I need confidence and I can only get that by playing regularly," Assulin said. "City and I both feel that I should go out on loan so I can play every week.

"I could stay in England or maybe join a team in the Spanish second division."

Assulin, 20, has reunited with agent Pini Zahavi who told the player to lower his sights to get valuable playing time after leaving Barcelona last year.
