Sheffield United are considering a move for former Liverpool striker Dean Sturridge.
The former England international is available on a free transfer after he left Trabzonspor earlier this year.
He cancelled his contract with the Turkish club after being given a four-month ban for breaching betting regulations.
That suspesion has now been served, with the 31-year-old on the lookout for a Premier League return.
“We have options around the world but I’m an English player and I’ve always loved playing in the Premier League,” he told Sky Sports. ”I believe I’ve got a lot to give to the Premier League and I would say that’s my first choice.
“I do feel I have unfinished business so I would like to go back and play there. I’m open to playing in other leagues, it’s not just the Premier League I’m going to consider, but to come back to England and give my best would be a huge option for me.”
