Aruna Dindane could return to the Premier League earlier than expected after revealing he is yet to leave RC Lens.
The 29-year-old was believed to have joined Qatar-based club Lekhwiya along with international teammate Bakari Kone in May.
However, the Ivorian, who has been linked with moves to Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers, has revealed that he will be leaving France after the World Cup, with a return to England not out of the question.
"I know which one I'm going to join but I won't reveal who until after the World Cup," Dindane told The Observer.
Asked whether he may join a Premier League club next season, he replied: "Possibly."
Dindane enjoyed a season-long loan deal at Portsmouth last season, scoring 10 goals in 24 games for the club.
