Former Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has opened the door for a return to the Barclays Premier League with Aston Villa reportedly interested in securing his signature according to talkSPORT.

The 38-year-old stopper has spent the past four season's as back up to Iker Casillas at Real Madrid.

But having made just a solitary La Liga appearance last term, Dudek feels it is now time to move on in search of more regular football.

"I have not thought about hanging up my boots yet," he said. "Look at Jens Lehmann, who returned when requested by Arsenal.

"I have an offer from Spain, and Turkey and England. What is clear is that wherever I go, I have to play.


"Although I have been happy at Real Madrid and I consider it my home, it is now time to play again."

Dudek retains fond memories from his time in England having spent six glorious season's at Anfield with Liverpool.

The highlight of his Reds career came in 2005 when Dudek played a pivotal role in helping Liverpool secure the UEFA Champions League with victory over AC Milan in Istanbul.

Aston Villa's goalkeeper search comes off the back of losing Brad Friedel, a reported Liverpool target to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this week, and Dudek could be eyed as a short-term replacement at Villa Park.

With the managerial position still not filled by Villa, as soon as an appointment has been made, the new boss will be made aware of the former Anfield guard's summer availability.
