John Mikel Obi confirms that a return to England is ‘high possibility’ amid Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion interest. Mikel, 33, has left the Turkish Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor in March as a free agent.
The former Super Eagles captain has also been linked with Brazilian clubs Botafogo and Internacional leaving Trabzonspor.
He refused to confirm or deny reports linking him with newly-promoted West Brom and Championship side Stoke City.
“Yes, there are interested clubs and England is a strong possibility and why not..,” Mikel told BBC Sport Africa.
“We are currently in talks with clubs and there is absolutely no hurry. I can only wait to see what happens.”
Mikel won multiple titles during an 11-year stay at Chelsea and had a brief stint at Middlesbrough before moving to Turkey.
He also once featured for Chinese Super League club Tiajin TEDA.
