Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand could reveal the destination of his next club in the 'coming few days' after deciding to end his 12-year stay at Old Trafford.
Ferdinand will become a free agent at the end of next month - but is able to open discussions with any club over the possibility of joining them later this summer.
The 35-year-old is expected to attract interest from sides in the Premier League and overseas - with the likes of Queens Park Rangers, Arsenal and LA Galaxy all said to be keen on signing the veteran defender.
Ferdinand, who announced he would not be signing a new deal at Manchester United on Monday, has admitted he is yet to weigh up his options.
The former England defender, speaking to Sky Sports, said on his future plans: "In the coming days I will start to think about my next step and make a decision on what will happen.
"I haven't had much time to do that yet since the season ended. I've been able to get away from the hype and enjoy my time."
Ferdinand also found time to heap praise on soon-to-be Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.
The Dutchman is likely to be officially confirmed as the new manager of Manchester United next week and Ferdinand believes the 62-year-old will a good fit at Old Trafford.
"He seems very strong and direct, has a good understanding and knowledge of what he wants to do and doesn't deviate. You need to be like that at a club like Man United," added Ferdinand.
"At every club he's been at - Ajax, Bayern Munich, Barcelona - he seems to have gone in and done things his own way and I envisage him doing same thing if he comes in to United like it's anticipated."
