Ben Mee is hoping to impress on loan at Burnley this season, with the Manchester City youngster wanting to show Roberto Mancini that he is closer than ever to receiving a chance to shine at the Etihad Stadium next season.

Mee moved into the senior City squad through the youth ranks in 2009, and has spent loan spells as Leicester City and Burnley since.

And the England Under 21 international says that he is hoping to star for the Npower Championship side this season, thus staking his claim on a spot in the City squad in 2012.


"It would be great to get a few first-team games back at Manchester City, but I'm just looking to do well here at Burnley for now," Mee told

"Whatever happens back at City will happen in due course and I can't do anything about that at the moment.

"We will have to see what happens next year because obviously there is a wealth of talent there and it is going to be difficult for any youngster to break into the first team there.

"That is my long-term goal, but whether it will happen remains to be seen for another year at least."

Mee has so far made six appearances for Burnley, and the defender is hoping to build on that number to play alongside some of the best players in the world.
