Out-of-favour Liverpool winger Milan Jovanovic admits there is a chance he could leave Anfield and return to his native Serbia.
The 29-year-old, who arrived on Merseyside last summer on a free transfer from Belgian club Standard Liege, has struggled to make an impact for the Reds this season, starting just five Premier League matches.
Jovanovic has also slipped further down the pecking order since Kenny Dalglish took over as manager earlier this year, making just two appearances under the new boss.
Reports in Serbia suggest he could return home in the summer to link up with Red Star Belgrade, who are thought to be chasing his signature.
And the winger has not ruled out the possibility, while revealing a return to former club Vojvodina could also be an option.
"I'm not the one who started this story," Jovanovic told Serbian publication Mondo.
"Yes, you can never know what the future will bring you and I have never said that I will not return home someday.
"But then again we have to look at the reality of Serbian football.
"At this moment there are just minimal chances for me to return to Serbia, for at least the next two years.
"I have full respect for Red Star, who are probably the biggest brand in our football, and I have a lot of friends in that club.
"But Vojvodina are still the only club for which I have played in Serbia so I'm still foremost a fan of Vojvodina."
