Bayern Munich and Ukraine midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk look set to go their separate ways at the end of the season, according to the 34-year-old.

"I think I'll go," he told German magazine Kicker with his contract set to expire in June having started only three games in 17 appearances this season and been used as a substitute 13 times.

"Every time, I think I will play and then it comes to nothing. That's annoying. I can't talk to the club about a new contract when I'm not playing. No one has spoken to me."

Since Bayern signed Spain star Javi Martinez at the start of the season, the Ukrainian has had limited chances to play in the defensive midfield position.

Tymoshchuk, who has made 127 appearances for Ukraine, joined Bayern from Zenit St Petersburg in 2009, making 82 appearances in the Bundesliga and played in last season's Champions League final defeat to Chelsea in Munich.
