Former Portsmouth striker Danny Webber insists that ambition is the key to where he plays next season, with overseas options available to him.
The 29-year-old proved his fitness by featuring in the final eight games of last season for Pompey after a 12-month spell on the sidelines.
Webber told skysports.com that he would prefer to remain in England, but only if he finds a club that matches his personal ambitions of playing in the Premier League.
"I'm aiming to play at the highest level possible, but the majority of the clubs I've spoken to are in the Championship, as well as a number of randomly positioned clubs from abroad," he said.
"Some have been as far out as the Middle East, which has been interesting.
"At the end of the day, it depends where it is and what the club's ambitions are really.
"With regards to England, I would love to stay here, but I don't want to play for a club that doesn't have ambition to do well, because regardless where I've been playing in my career I have always had ambition to do well.
"I want to be surrounded by people that are aiming high and want to achieve things, so if that is in the Championship then I want to be focusing on gaining promotion and playing Premier League football.
"I've had a lot of phone calls and met with a few people, with some more appealing than others, but I just want to make the right decision.
"I want to get back to playing up front and scoring goals again, which I am 100 per cent confident in doing."
