Luis Boa Morte has revealed he has received offers from clubs in the Championship, but still harbours hope of playing top-flight football next season.
The former West Ham and Fulham winger is a free agent after quitting South African side Orlando Pirates in May, six months into an 18-month contract.
The 34-year-old has been keeping himself fit in preparation for the new season and took part in the annual FIFPro trial event for unattached footballers in the Netherlands last weekend.
The Portuguese player, who also had spells with Arsenal and Southampton, has offers on the table from Championship clubs but still hasn't given up hope of returning to the Premier League.
"This tournament is a great opportunity for me and the other players to show our skills in front of a crowd of scouts and agents," Boa Morte told bold.dk.
"It also gives us the opportunity to get match fitness, which is important at this time of the year where clubs are looking for players.
"Right now I have offers from the Championship but I still have ambitions for myself and I want to play top-flight football or play for top teams in the Championship.
"As of now everything is still open and I'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for me."
