West Ham United midfielder Julien Faubert admits he is open to a return to France during the January transfer window.
Faubert endured an injury-plagued first season at Upton Park after joining the Hammers from Bordeaux in the summer of 2007.
He started this season as a regular in the team, but he has not appeared in Gianfranco Zola's starting line-up for the club's last three Premier League games.
The 25-year-old has been linked with a move back to French football, with champions Lyon and Paris St Germain both reportedly interested.
Though Faubert acknowledged he is happy at West Ham, he would not rule out a transfer in the New Year.
"I need to play, I am 25 years old," Faubert told Le Parisien.
"Even if I feel very well here, I would not exclude the possibility of returning to France.
"Clubs like Lyon and PSG are very attractive. We'll see in January."
