thumbnail Hello,

The Schalke striker was close to a move to England in the past and he says there is no guarantee he will stay at his current club for the remainder of his career

Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has admitted that he would be open to a move to the Premier League if the opportunity arose in the future.

The Netherlands international, 30, has played across a range of leagues in Europe, enjoying spells in the Eredivisie, La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga.

And Huntelaar has acknowledged that a move to England could prove to be an interesting option if he were to leave Schalke at some point.

"I still have a one-and-a-half-year contract with Schalke. I think six months before my current deal expires a decision will be made about my future," he told Bild.

"Of course, I think about England every now and then. But only Schalke and the second half of the season count for me at this point."

And Huntelaar says playing alongside attacking talents such as Max Meyer, Julian Draxler and Kevin-Prince Boateng has whetted his appetite to extend his career further.

"When you play in a team where only one or two people want to score goals, that's way too easy to defend. You have to have goals even from midfield. As a striker, you need goalscoring people next to you," he continued.

"I want to play to 40. I want to play another 10 years of football. I feel young and fit."
