Former Portsmouth striker Dindane interested in Premier League return

The Ivory Coast international, currently playing in Qatar, enjoyed his time in England so much he wants to come back when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season
Former Portsmouth striker Aruna Dindane wants to return to the Premier League following a spell in Qatar.

The Ivorian played at Fratton Park in a loan spell during the 2009-10 season but failed to earn a permanent contract at the club, as they were relegated from the English top-flight.

Dindane has been plying his trade in the Middle East for the past two seasons but feels he still has a lot to offer to a club in England.

The 32-year-old becomes a free agent at the end of the current campaign and it is reported that West Brom, Swansea and Southampton will be interested in signing the former Ivory Coast international.

He told reporters: "I am a free agent at the end of the season.

"I have contacts to return to the French Ligue 1, but I want to play in the Premier League again.

"I liked it at Portsmouth. It was a difficult time for the club when I was there, but I managed to score 10 goals despite missing a lot of games. Now I want to play there again.

"There are some contacts with clubs. My agent is working on things.

"I have options in Europe. There are clubs in France, Portugal and Turkey, but I want to play in England."
