John Mikel Obi admits a return to England is ‘a strong possibility’ amid interest from Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion.

Mikel, 33, is a free agent after leaving Turkish Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor in March.

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.
