Former Liverpool goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov has admitted a shock return to the club is an option.
The FC Twente goalkeeper spent three years with the Anfield outfit officially, but never saw Barclays Premier League playing time for Liverpool before moving to the Eredivisie permanently after three successful loan years with his current club in the country.
Rafael Benitez signed the Bulgarian international in 2007, but unexpected problems with a work permit meant the Reds were forced to loan the 22-year-old out of England.
Mihaylov has since impressed in Holland, and club's across Europe have started taking an interest in the stopper after helping his side to the title last term. Should Steve McLaren's former club get a draw against Ajax this weekend, they will be crowned champions for a second successive time.
"I could have stayed at Liverpool, but I would only have been third-choice goalkeeper there. I am first-choice here and have even played in the Champions League," he told Goal.com.
"There is some interest from bigger leagues, but I feel very well at Twente. Obviously every young player wants to make steps forward. I think that I would fit in pretty well in the Bundesliga or Premier League. Spain is nice as well, but they play a different kind of football there. They play very attacking football in England."
The keeper stoked the fire further by claiming that a return to Liverpool is an option, although he suggested it would be an unlikely move should Pepe Reina remained at Anfield.
"A return to Liverpool could be an option, but they still have Pepe Reina, meaning that I would again warm the bench."
